教皇皮亚斯十二世的苦难历程

罗马-教皇皮亚斯十二世的声誉正再次受到责问和攻击。事实上,针对这位二战期间罗马天主教教皇而提出的问题是如此的尖锐,对其的讨论是如此的激烈,以致当前教皇本笃十六世最近宣布,他可能会把皮亚斯十二世的宣福礼推迟到梵蒂冈战争年代的档案开放供审查后举行。

皮亚斯十二世在位期间,罗马的天主教会保护和为数以千计的犹太人提供藏身之处。然而为何他却常常被指控为几乎是纳粹德国共犯呢?这是个我们时代的最棘手的历史问题之一。

二战结束后的数年中,皮亚斯十二世享有极高的声望,甚至在犹太人社区也是如此。但此潮流于20世纪60年代转向,以罗尔夫﹒霍赫胡特的剧本“副手”为起点,皮亚斯十二世的声誉开始遭到激烈的质疑。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
