The Court of the Gentiles and the Evangelization of Atheists

Pope Ratzinger hopes "to open a systematic dialogue with the men who are farthest from God, so that they may approach him 'at least as Unknown,'" reports Sandro Magizter — The First "Court" of Believers and Atheists Will Open in Paris. Heading the initiative is Archbishop Gianfranco Ravasi, who said, "This path can even lead to the question of the Unknown, the 'Àgnostos Theòs,' the unknown God, to whom Saint Paul referred in his famous speech in the Areopagus of Athens, recalled in the passage from Benedict XVI that we cited at the outset."
