Zolli (Eugenio)

Eugenio Zolli : from the synagogue to the Church of Rome

Basing himself on the Old Testament as on the “ Rock of Israel ”, Eugenio (Israel) Zolli (1881-1956) was not content with a “ philosophic ” view, juxtaposing Judaism and Christianity as two static entities, each retaining its own position, but he opens a passage from one to the other, from the Rock of Israel to the Catholic Church founded on the “ Rock ” which is Christ Our Lord, and he advances towards it as « the prophet of a new world », the precursor of a numerous people.
