Prix Las Casas
The Institute for the Study of Religions and Interreligious Dialogue (IRD) offers every other year the Bartolomé de Las Casas Prize for a doctoral dissertation, habilitation or equivalent monograph.
Bartolomé de Las Casas (1484-1566), Dominican friar and bishop, considered by the Chilean poet and Nobel Prize winner Gabriela Mistral as a “glory for humanity,” treated in several works, memoirs and letters the questions that arose from the first globalization, in the shadow of European expansion. In his writings, which showed his Christian compassion in the face of humanity’s suffering, Las Cases pleaded for a peaceful form of evangelization, for the unity of the human family, the rights of the Indian peoples, and for the dignity and harmony of religions and cultures.
