Resumen

VORSTER, Nico. A theological perspective on human dignity, equality and freedom. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2012, vol.33, n.1, pp. 1-6. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v33i1.719.

Human dignity has proven to be a vague term in liberal rights discourse because of its broad range. This article attempted to provide a Christian definition of human dignity that is helpful in resolving tensions between equality and freedom. Firstly, it addressed the question of whether religious understandings of human dignity ought to be considered in the public domain. Secondly, it provided a theological perspective on dignity, equality and freedom and, lastly, it considered the special contribution that a Christian concept of dignity, equality and freedom can make to the rights discourse.
