2001 International Kolbe Congress

Maximilian M. Kolbe in His Time and Today: Interdisciplinary Approach to the Person and His Writings was the theme of the International Congress held in Rome in September 2001. The English translations of the talks were provided by the organizers and are posted here as PDF files. Please be advised that St. Maximilian’s writings are cited with the abbreviation SK, which corresponds to the English abbreviation KW. Moreover, please know that, at the time, the official English translation of St. Maximilian’s writings had not been completed yet, so the quotations were translated from the Italian edition.
