This Article examines four such strategies, those employed by Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Chile. Part I of this Article examines the experience of military dictatorship in each of these countries and the respective efforts each country has made to bring torturers to accountability. Part II offers a comparison of such strategies and the judicial philosophies that informed them. Finally, Part III, explores a distinctly Catholic perspective from which such strategies might be assessed, the fundamental notion of sacramentality, and implications for such an assessment.
