Abstract

Prof. Laude reflects on the ambiguity of the notion of transmission and heritage from a religious perspective. On the one hand, religion commands man to honor his parents. Truly, there is no living spiritual tradition without a process of transmission of values from the one generation to the next. On the other hand, the highest goal of man is God. Love toward this Divine Reality necessarily transcends any form of attachment toward one’s culture or family. This is why precisely religious traditions have generally elevated the status of the spiritual teacher above the one of the biological father.
