Maps for a Fiesta

A Latina/o Perspective on Knowledge and the Global Crisis

Otto Maduro and Edited by Eduardo Mendieta

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • This book will stand as the theological and philosophical testament of the late Otto Maduro, one of the best-known Latino theologians in the United States and former president of the American Academy of Religion (AAR).
  • Maduro articulates how popular religion, and the theology that is reflection on its praxis, are epistemological tools for making sense of a world that appears intractable and beyond the reach of justice.
  • In the original Spanish, Maps for a Fiesta has inspired generations of Latin American Christians; we hope this will do the same for the English-speaking world.
  • Shortly before his untimely death, Maduro extensively revised the English translation, to make it his final statement.
