Benedict XVI - Legacy of a Professor Pope

Last edited 27th February 2013

Benedict XVI published three encyclicals throughout his eight year pontificate, the first just eight months after his election as Pope. It is titled Deus Caritas Est, “God is Love,” and delves into a reflection of human and divine love. His second and third encyclicals are Spe Salvi and Caritas in Veritate.

He also wrote four Apostolic Exhortations as a result of the Synods of Bishops. One of them deals with the sacrament of the Eucharist, another on the Word of God and the mission of the Church, a third on the Church in Africa, and the last one on the Church in the Middle East. He published a large number of government documents, 129 Apostolic Letters and 116 Apostolic Constitutions. Watch this video for more!
