Resumen: This volume on Christian Jurists in Latin America examines the lives of forty key personalities in Latin American legal history, in particular how their Christian faith was a factor in molding the evolution of law in their countries and the region. Each chapter discusses a jurist within his or her intellectual and political context. All chapters have been written by distinguished legal scholars and historians from Latin America and around the world. This diversity of international and methodological perspectives gives the volume its unique character; it will appeal to scholars, lawyers, and students interested in the interplay between religion and law. Many political, social, and legal historians will find, for the first time in English, authoritative treatments of the legal luminaries of the region. Latin America offers an important geographic region for scholarly attention.
