“The Parish of St Precarius” and the View of the Social Teaching of the Church
Šrajer Jindøich, Míèka Roman
The paper discusses the key theses of the essay De parochie van Sint–Precarius (2013) written by the well known Belgian author Geert van Istendael. It attempts to analyse the text in it’s political and economic context and compares Istendael’s ideas and opinions with the views of the Catholic social teaching. The paper concludes that Istandael’s text corresponds with CST’s diagnosis of the present situation, but there are marked differences in ideological views and suggestions for solving political and economic problems.
