  • Angelo Cannata

    Angelo Cannata (Modica, 19 February, 1964) is a researcher in spirituality and biblical scholar, keen on the weak thought of Gianni Vattimo.

    In 1991 he obtained a degree in Biblical Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University and was ordained a priest in the Catholic Church.

    Until 2013 he divided his commitments between teaching the Sacred Scripture in some theological institutions and the parish ministry.

    In 2013 he published the book Walking, available for free in this website, in which his line of thought is presented; the book is an introduction to philosophy aimed to highlight an anti-metaphysical perspective and as a life instrument.

    That same year he left the priesthood, then he left the Catholic faith and soon after the faith in God. These choices have been caused by a perception of increasingly clear incompatibility between antimetaphysics and dogmatism of the Church first, critical thinking and problem of theodicy later. He does not find possible to profess faith in a God who is by definition good and omnipotent, and at the same time to maintain living memory of his absence in front of evil in the world.

    In 2016 he started the blog Spiritual Study, a research targeted to the recovery of spirituality to criticism and secularism. Spirituality is not considered salvation, and certainly not a person; it is merely a neutral human faculty which, like all others, is worth trying to use in the best ways.
