The world’s major religions, though infinitely varied in their dogmatic symbols and narratives, meet on the commons of moral concern. All of them are classics, flawed classics to be sure, in the art of cherishing life and in pursuing justice as the only sure route to peace. They are not abstract Rawlsian disquisitions on the theoretic of justice but they are rich in ores that can be mined and refined into experience-based justice theory. This is particularly true in Judaism and it carried through into Christianity and Islam. Similar moral passions and insights can be found, mutatis mutandis, in the rich religious traditions of the East.
