Vatican Diplomacy: Nuclear Disarmament

This curricular module explores the evolving Vatican position on nuclear disarmament, highlighting how the Catholic Church plays a unique role in international relations. Rev. Drew Christiansen, S.J., considers the future of Catholic action on nuclear disarmament in a 2019 article on “Time for the Abolition of Nuclear Arms” [PDF]. Christansen organized a daylong workshop on “The Pope and the Bomb: Beyond Deterrence” [videos] in 2020, which examined the moral and pastoral implications of the Church position on nuclear disarmament, as well as other timely themes in nuclear geopolitics. Below, you can explore more resources on Vatican diplomacy and nuclear disarmament.
