Peace and Living Together signed at February 2019 by Pope Francis and the Grand Imam of al-

the document. Later the paper decides to evaluate the document in three views. First underlines
a number of key, positive and important characteristics of content of the document. Immediately
the paper mentions the unclear and negative ones. The paper concludes on three key facts of the
document: a) the question of the unity of the human race, b) the question of full citizenship for
