Pasolini’s St Paul in print

Screenplay of Italian director’s unrealised movie in English.

Pasolini - St Paul

Legendary filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini’s unrealized screenplay on the life of Paul the Apostle has been translated into English and will be published on July 7th.

Written between the appearance of his renowned film Teorema and the shocking, controversial Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom, St Paul was deemed too risky for investors.

In Pasolini’s kaleidoscope, we encounter fascistic movements, resistance fighters, and faltering revolutions, each of which reflects on aspects of the Pauline teachings which is central to the Christian religion.

This is a key addition to the growing debate around St Paul and to the proliferation of literature centered on the current turn to religion in philosophy and critical theory, which embraces contemporary figures such as Alain Badiou (who supplies the foreword to this edition), Slavoj Žižek and Giorgio Agamben.
