About

Welcome to the Theology News Blog - an attempt to provide a 'one-stop shop' for all news stories, podcasts and TV programming related to religion, philosophy and the theory of knowledge (TOK). It grew out of a similar site created for GCSE and A-Level/IB students in students but is now being offered as an open-to-all resource. It will hopefully be of use to any and all with an interest in these subjects. For notification of all updates either follow us by email or on Twitter (@theologynews) by clicking on the links in the right-hand column. For my own theological writing, please follow the link in the right-hand column to my other blog.

Pope switches on world's largest electronic Christmas tree


The huge tree is made of 800 lights and laid out on the side of Mount Ingino, near the town of Gubbio in central Italy.
The pontiff joined the town by videolink allowing everyone to see the moment when he pressed the tablet to remotely light the tree.
"This great christmas tree is formed by many lights," Pope Benedictsaid as he addressed the Gubbio resdients.
"The wish I would like to give is that each one of us could bring a little light to the environment where we live: in our families, at work, in our districts, our countries and in the towns" he added.
