Explore Pope Francis' environmental encyclical, Laudato Si'

On June 18, 2015, Pope Francis released his long-awaited environmental encyclical, Laudato Si'. Gumberg Library has created a guide to help the Duquesne community understand and analyze this document, which speaks directly to parts of the current Duquesne University strategic plan.

The guide will quickly connect users to electronic resources available through Gumberg Library and to vetted, high-quality websites. The guide will point to resources that praise the ideas contained in the encyclical, as well as to responsible critiques, to provide access to the whole range of thought on this newest addition to the social teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
