Abstract:

The Christian church's teaching on justice uniformly employs the fundamental distinctions of justice advanced by Thomas Aquinas. He distinguishes, for example, justice as a universal concept from particular instances of justice. Nonetheless, these distinctions are applied inconsistently in Christian social ethics. This has led to competing frameworks of interpretation in the examination of questions that concern justice. This essay attempts to unravel the distinct applications of all the species of justice in modern Christian social thought in order to set up a framework for justice that properly distinguishes each species of justice, and also clarifies the relationships between instances of these species.
