Saint Alberto Hurtado, S.J.

Saint Alberto Hurtado (1901-1952), a Jesuit priest from Chile who ministered to the poor, is highly regarded in Latin America, but less well-known in the English-speaking world. BC Law Professor Scott FitzGibbon and BC Law alumna Fernanda Soza hope to bring St. Hurtado’s prophetic voice to a wider audience with their new publication, Social Morality. Saint Alberto Hurtado, S.J. (Convivium Press, 2018). Edited by FitzGibbon and Soza, Social Morality. Saint Alberto Hurtado, S.J., is the first English translation of St. Hurtado’s posthumously published work, originally published in Spanish some 50 years after his death. This annotated translation features introductory comments and more than 600 footnotes. FitzGibbon and Soza’s publication was showcased at an international conference organized earlier this semester by BC Law and the School of Theology and Ministry on Catholic Social Thought in the Era of Pope Francis: Roots in the Work of Saint Alberto Hurtado.”
