[Comment] Offline: When The Lancet went to the Vatican

When Beppe Remuzzi, who directs the Mario Negri Laboratories in Bergamo, proposed that The Lancet might make a small contribution to healing the schism between science and the Catholic Church, you might imagine that this idea seemed ambitious beyond reason. And yet last week his vision was realised.
