Overview The first volume in a new Orbis series, published in cooperation with the Centre for the Study of Latino/a Catholicism at the University of San Diego. The Catholic understanding of Tradition is not just about the preservation of ancient practices or customs; it is the process by which the faith is handed on ("traditioned") from one generation to another. The essays in this volume, by scholars from a wide range of disciplines, centre on two questions: How is the Christian tradition "traditioned" among Latino/as? And what impact does this "traditioning" have on the Tradition? Aside from the editors, contributors include Bernard Cooke, Miguel H. Diaz, Michelle Gonzalez, Jose R. Irizzary, Francisco Lozada, Jr., Daisy L. Machado, Nancy Pineda-Madrid, Gary Riebe-Estrella, Jean-Pierre Ruiz, and Theresa Torres.
