"rituals and justice" is fine in context, but justice does rather imply a legal context, when  essentially just means "what is right". I would probably gloss 禮儀 as "etiquette and rightness", which also nicely gets across the prissiness of this ideal!


I thought you were right that "justice" is not suitable for 儀, but then I checked my copy and it has 知禮義. This is something I'll have to research.

大倫 is a moral system, so you can include or leave out the word moral for clarity's sake, but it isn't in the original.


I think I'll keep the word "moral".
