Transgenic crops are introduced by Pope Francis in the encyclical „Laudato si’”. It is the first document originating from Catholic teaching in which genetically modified (GM) crops are explicitly considered. Biodiversity is the main framework in which genetically engineered
plants are contemplated. In addition to ecological concerns, the three different aspects have been presented: socioeconomic, scientific, and moral/theological. The interdisciplinary and multiperspective approach has been advocated in order to tackle the controversy of GM crops.
