25-11-2015

As part of the presentation of the new book by writer Anna Maria Gargiulo, “Maria, Mia Misericordia” (Mary, My Mercy), with a preface by Ermanno Corsi, to be held in Massa Lubrense’s Town Hall, Largo Vescovado, 2, on Saturday, December 12th, 2015 at 6.00pm, the Sorrentine writer Raffaele Lauro will hold a speech: “Mary, Mother of Mercy and Mother of Jesus, a bridge of grace and peace between Christianity and Islam”. This theme of dramatic actuality due to the tragic events caused by Islamic Jihadi terrorists, resumes in a theological way the spirit of the historical novel by Raffaele Lauro, “Sorrento The Romance - The conflict between Christianity and Islam in the sixteenth century”, the first volume of “The Sorrentine Trilogy”, as the only way of dialogue among the three great monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. “Sorrento The Romance” passes through the mournful events experienced by the people of Massa and by the people of Sorrento following the sack of Massa Lubrense and Sorrento on 13th June 1558, perpetrated by the Turkish fleet led by one of the Suleiman the Magnificent admirals, Piyale Pasha.
