A Grammar of Justice

The Legacy of Ignacio Ellacuria
  • By Mathew J. Ashley
  • By Kevin F. Burke
  • By Rodolfo Cardenal S. J.
November 2014 marks the 25th anniversary of the massacre of the Jesuit community of the University of Central America in San Salvador and the death of the rector, Fr. Ignacio Ellacuria. This volume, drawing on a team of international scholars, focuses on the work of Ellacuria and its relevance for the future. As the editors note, Ellacuria has achieved an international reputation not only in Latin America but throughout the world as one of the most brilliant contributors to Latin American liberation theology and one of the most important Jesuits in the post-conciliar Society and Church. The title refers to Cardinal Newman s grammar of assent, his argument for the role of faith in countering the debilitating rationalism of his age. In a similar way, Ellacuria envisions a grammar of justice as a response to the postmodern apathy of today."
