Among the main cultural policy issues of the Holy See the following ones can be listed:
- the encounter between the Gospel and cultures;
- the rift between the Gospel and culture, religious indifference and non-belief, and
- relations between the Catholic Church and the world of culture, giving special emphasis to dialogue with various cultures. The Holy See aims its efforts at those who work in the fields of the Sciences, Literature, and the Arts, building bridges between the Gospel and all expressions of modern cultures.
