Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi

Foreword to Machaerus III

"Vörös wanted to involve other scientific institutions into a harmonious blend of skills and nationalities (Italian, French, Hungarian). Thus, the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum worked alongside the Dominican École Biblique et Archéologique, accompanied by the Hungarian Academy of Arts, and all with the endorsement of the Royal Department of Antiquities in Jordan. The team, with its names and competencies are displayed at the beginning of this volume."

National and Ethnic Reconciliation in Central Europe – Overcoming the Patterns of a Difficult Past

"The imposition of Communism on all the Soviet-occupied countries put an end to all schemes for federation or even customs union. Lip service was paid to the “brotherhood” of the so-called socialist countries, but it was a false front which hid but did not eliminate national antagonisms. Even after the collapse of Communism general and genuine reconciliation did not occur, especially not in the depths of societies."


Nicholas T. Parsons

Judson’s History of the Habsburg Empire

"An imperial EU, if it is to function, will necessarily be authoritarian, since there is as yet no demos that would provide the basis for a genuine pan-European democracy. A partial solution is supposedly offered by 'subsidiarity', a notion founded in Catholic doctrine, which accepts that some issues are best resolved at the local level. However this is in conflict with the Eurocratic mindset of accreting power to Brussels wherever and whenever possible – 'more Europe' as Angela Merkel used to urge, though perhaps not entirely sincerely."


Emil Brix

Has Austria Become a Different Country?

"The government programme concentrates on structural modernisation and shows a liberal economic mix of reducing the tax burden and regulations for business, as also for the individual tax payer. Despite the obvious differences of the coalition partners on the future of European integration, the government did agree on a pro-European commitment which circles around the common denominator that in the future the EU should 'do less but (do what it does) more effectively'."


Miklós Szánthó

From Desire to Rights – Notes on Human Rights Fundamentalism

"The notions of the rule of law, European values, democracy, human rights and equality, so often invoked in European discourse, actually lack a precise (and therefore potentially authoritative) definition. As such, they can be twisted and stretched to any length and tweaked in any manner in the name of fundamental human rights – and they are."


John O’Sullivan

Making a Virtue of Nationalism

"European political debate at present centres around the rising popular resistance to Brussels, to its growing centralisation of power, and to particular policies it has pursued (such as relocating migrants), often with little or no consultation, across the continent. It seems likely, though not certain, that this resistance will mean major changes in the strength of different parties in Brussels and Strasbourg following next May’s EU elections."


Viktor Orbán

On the 25th anniversary of death of Prime Minister József Antall, Budapest, 11 December 2018

"We have gathered together today at this commemorative conference in order to pay tribute to József Antall, Hungary’s first freely elected prime minister after the fali of Communism. I am in a difficult situation: I am constrained by the conventions of public speaking, my time is limited, and I will be followed by outstanding speakers. Another trap facing me is that I am haunted by nostalgia: when József Antall entered office in 1990 I was 27, and today I am 55, so I have lived half my life in the post-József Antall era; when I remember him I am also looking back on my youthful self."
