Summary/Abstract: "Courtyard of the Gentiles" is a new initiative of the Catholic Church leading to the encounter and dialogue believers and non-believers. The name and assumptions of "Courtyard of the Gentiles" refers to the part of the Temple of Jerusalem dedicated to people who were not Jews, but wanted to know the one God. Today's "court of the Gentiles" enables mutual understanding and exchange opinions on various universal problems that can be categorized as truth, goodness and beauty. Overcomes also the temptation of isolationism and open to people who think differently and have different hierarchy of values.
