People gawked as Catholic bishops and Iranian ayatollahs amicably walked the streets of Rome together in June. What happened when they sat together behind closed doors to discuss nuclear weapons, the use of force, and terrorism?
This event discussed the encounter between U.S. Catholic bishops and five Iranian religious leaders that took place June 5-10, 2016 in Rome, that followed on the 5-day visit by U.S. bishops to Qom, Iran (Iran’s Holy City) in March 2014.
