Études sur Tibhirine / Tibhirine studies

In conjunction with the "Association for the Protection of the Writings of the Atlas Seven", the Institut Saint Thomas d'Aquin pour la théologie et la culture (ISTAC) wishes to continue this research effort and to allocate the necessary resources to it by offering a quality research framework and by supporting the search for useful funds. ISTAC intends to promote the study of these writings both among young researchers and the general public. Through its expertise in theological research, and through the means it is acquiring, ISTAC hopes to contribute to the enhancement of this spiritual heritage and to make it better known. Finally, it seeks to cooperate with other theological institutions and research centres in order to share views and coordinate efforts at the international level. This collection, intended for both collective works and single-author monographs, is directed by the scientific committee "Les écrits de Tibhirine": Dom Thomas Georgeon, Marie-Dominique Minassian and Jean Jacques Pérennès, o.p.
