This is the lecture that sparked worldwide outcry - for all the wrong reasons. In reality, the Regensburg Address is a sparkling meditation on theology, philosophy, and education. Pope Benedict XVI is able to compress profound reflections on the Bible and Greek philosophy into what is a short and accessible lecture. After castigating the media for their bad reporting on the address, Jonathan and Ryan take it apart to reveal its beauty and complexity, covering varied topics including Socrates, the Burning Bush, German philosophy, the Scholastic-Humanist quarrel, Catholicism vs. Protestantism, and the structure of the university.
