Preaching Justice II
Contributions of Dominican Women to
Social Ethics in the 20th Century

Editors: Helen Alford OP and Francesco Compagnoni OP

  • In Dec 2007 the book Preaching Justice: Dominican Contributions to Social Ethics in the 20th Century was presented. It covers the contribution of over 30 Dominicans, mostly friars but also two lay Dominicans (men), covering the twentieth century from its beginning until its end.
  • The idea of “Preaching Justice II” is to dedicate a similarly extensive research project to the female members of the Dominican Order and to produce a similar kind of final publication to present its results.
  • Preaching Justice II should be published in 2012, which is the year dedicated to “Women and Preaching” in the countdown to the 2016 celebration, thus supporting the Order as a whole in its celebrations for that year.
  • We would be interested to hear from you if you have suggestions for sisters, communities or projects to be included in the book. We are interested in people or projects that address the following issues:
    • structural injustice, structural sin, and the promotion of human rights;
    • ideas and theories in social ethics, especially when work was published;
    • Education, where teaching materials or curricula were developed by Dominican women with regard to Catholic social thought, social ethics or justice and peace/ ecological questions;
    • We hope to have examples of the work of the sisters in this field throughout the 20th century. Even though it is likely that most will come from the 1960’s onwards, there could be interesting examples from earlier in the century, which, because they would be somewhat pioneering would be especially interesting
  • In the book, we can handle a maximum of 20 contributions, but we can have more on the website, which will also be in various languages.
