The JP2 Foundation intends to stimulate theological and spiritual study, especially when its setup is interdisciplinary. The idea is to initiate a dialogue on an academic level with a specific sector in society.
Furthermore the JP2 Foundation intends to stimulate as much as possible that good books are being written or translated in order to be published. This concerns both catechetical and pastoral books, as well as more scientific studies.
The latter are especially interesting when they are able to lay a bridge between theology or philosophy and other scientific disciplines. The aim is not for a financial gain, but for as broad as possible a distribution of these thoughts.
