Throughout his pontificate, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI spoke to a range of political, civil, academic, and cultural authorities, revealing a striking sensitivity to the fundamental problems of law, justice, and democracy. Collectively, these addresses formulate a series of core ideas for a "public teaching" on the topic of justice and law.

Simoncini, a professor of constitutional law at the University of Florence, will be joined by book contributor Paolo Carozza (Notre Dame Law School).
