Idem velle atque idem nolle amor amicitiæ w początkach nauczania papieża Benedykta XVI
„Idem velle atque idem nolle Amor amicitiæ” in the beginning of the papal teaching of Benedict XVI
Languages of publication
The present article is concerned with a multi-dimensional analysis of the problems of friendship, which was conducted by Pope Benedict XVI at the initial stage of his papal teaching. Pope Ratzinger made numerous references to the ancient writer Sallust’s famous adage „Idem velle atque idem nolle”. The Pope bases his vision of amor amicitiae on the foundation of God (Christ), which leads to friendship with everyone loved by God. The paragon of friendship is the Good Samaritan from the Gospel.
