'There are nymphs in the Vatican Garden'


Felipe Fernández-Armesto, the author, historian and William P. Reynolds Chair of History in the University of Notre Dame (United States), critically examines the consequences that could occur in Christian thought and Law in particular should the minimal difference between humans and primates be recognized in accordance with what has been highlighted in recent scientific advances.

The opinion article, published in the newspaper "El Mundo" (16.7.2013), uses the author’s participation in a meeting celebrated in the Vatican to examine the scientific proposals that could lead to a change in the principles and perceptions about the differences between human beings and animals.
