Antonio Rosmini (1797 – 1855) is a truly remarkable and controversial figure in 19th century Europe, in the aftermath of revolutions and Enlightenment. Beatified in 2007, he had founded a religious institute, was a great writer and priest, and yet in a short lifetime had attracted many enemies, with whom reconciliation and recognition was only posthumously achieved. This appreciation of his life, work and spirituality, including extracts from his writings, is remarkably relevant in today’s ideologically unsettled Europe.
