In the last years, starting from the study of the foundations of human
rights, Pier Cesare Bori has focused his research on the exegesis of
Genesis 1, 26-28, according to which man is created in the image of God.
In the Christian framework the imago Dei has led to different
interpretations: a charismatic and eschatological, an ontological and a
functional one. To solve the contradictions between these different
exegesis of imago Dei Bori has suggested to consider a larger
looking not only at the Christian tradition, but also at the other
monotheisms, cultures and religions.
The proceedings here presented are the result of this attempt to develop
new approaches to the study of the topic of imago Dei. It has been
undertaken by an international group of scholars from different
research fields (history, theology, hermeneutics, philosophy, exegesis)
during a few days of scientific exchange and dialogue.

Alberto Melloni holds the UNESCO Chair for Religious Pluralism and Peace
at the University of Bologna and is Professor of History of the Christianity at the
University of Modena – Reggio Emilia.

Riccardo Saccenti has studied mediaeval philosophy and both are members of the Fondazione per le Scienze Religiose „Giovanni XXIII“
