Revelation in the Vernacular
Author Jean-Pierre Ruiz
This remapping of a theology of revelation done latinamente begins with the implications of Spanish colonizers' efforts to reckon with the sort of religious difference that they had never encountered. It then retrieves from 16th-century Spain disruptive voices seeking to articulate a hermeneutics of the vernacular rooted en lo cotidiano (everyday life), a retrieval with significant possibilities for contemporary believers negotiating an understanding of divine self-disclosure in a religiously diverse world. Finally, Ruiz looks at the final document of the Amazonian Synod, as well as the postsynodal exhortation Querida Amazonia, to revisit the question of revelation in the context of interreligious understanding.
