Languages of publication
Capital punishment is a specific issue of great importance to be perceived in the context of the powers of the democratic constitutional state. The point is about a clear answer to the question about whether from the ethical point of view the state has the right to inflict capital punishment. A discussion about this issue is not an easy one. Relevant fragments of the latest catholic catechism approved by John Paul II shed a lot of valuable light on the issue of capital punishment.
