5-11 September 2016 Building on its very successful monthly-seminar series for Rome-based Vatican correspondents, the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome is offering the fifth edition of its intensive one-week Seminar in English, The Church Up Close: Covering Catholicism in the Age of Francis. The Seminar, from September 5-11, 2016, is designed for foreign journalists who cover the Roman Catholic Church.

The Church Up Close

Combining class-room seminars, personal meetings, and on-site visits, the Seminar gives journalists an array of tools to strengthen their coverage:

 

  • a basic sense of the lay of the land at the Vatican;
  • a serious, in-depth analysis of specific hot-button issues confronting today’s Church;
  • a personal introduction to some knowledgeable insiders and key players in Rome; a taste of the rich history and culture behind contemporary Church affairs;
  • a chance to dialogue, in an ideal setting, with journalists from around the world, on the complex relationships between religion and the media.
