Encyclical Rerum novarum — magna charta of Catholic social teaching
Languages of publication
The author of the article concentrated — mainly on the analysis of the social message — on the first, social encyclical Rerum novarum; encyclical of pope Leo XIII on Capital and Labour. The encyclical was the answer on the new — ideological, economic and social — reality. Leo XIII claimed, that in the central point of the solution of social question (which core was the labour question), has stayed human person in reference to God and fellow creature; he showed, that the most important is to act in accordance with gospel values — it is the guarantee of: the renovation, solution of the social and moral existence; respect of human rights and human dignity; a fair division of goods. In encyclical Rerum novarum, Leo XIII has connected evangelical, ecclesial orthodoxy with — in result — social orthopraxy.
