Murcia Academic Ceremony

On 28 November, an academic ceremony to honor Emeritus Professor Br. Francisco Víctor Sánchez Gil took place at the Theological Institute of Murcia. In his long career, Br. Victor was Director of three Franciscan journals: Carthaginensia, which he founded as the official journal of the theological Institute; Archivo Ibero-americano, a journal of Franciscan history for the Spanish-speaking world; and Archivum Franciscanum Historicum, an historical scientific journal published by the Collegio San Bonaventura. From the local to the international level the presence of Br. Victor has always guaranteed the scientific quality and academic level of these publications. At the ceremony were present our brother Card. Claudio Hummes, who was a fellow student of Br. Victor and that gave the Laudatio for the honoree. The event was also attended by the Secretary and Vice-Secretary of Formation and Studies Br. Cesare Vaiani e Br. Siniša Balaijc, who brought the honoree the General Minister’s greeting and blessing.
