This essay addresses the claim of the crucified people of El Salvador on theology and ethics, as they are done in the United States. Part I discusses the idea of the "crucified people," grounding the concept in the historical reality of the crucified people of El Mozote, El Salvador, and interpreting its meaning with reference to the overarching theological notion of the reign of God, presented in soteriological perspective. Part II develops a formal philosophical and theological outline of the Christian historical realism behind this important new concept, before presenting and interpreting the claims the crucified people present to theology and ethics.
