Liberating Theology

Liberating Theology

(p.61) Chapter four Liberating Theology
The Prophet of Cuernavaca

Todd Hartch

Oxford University Press

In the mid-1960s Ivan Illich built a network of radical Latin American theologians to counter the Eurocentric theology that predominated in the region. These theologians, including Gustavo Gutiérrez, then created liberation theology. Illich himself was not a devotee of liberation theology, but his center and his journals played key roles in developing the new theology. Liberation theologians associated with Illich and Cuernavaca include Camilo Torres, Segundo Galilea, Helder Camara, and Juan Luis Segundo. The rise of liberation theology attracted attention around the world, including in the Vatican.

Keywords:   Ivan Illich, Latin America, theology, Gustavo Gutiérrez, Segundo Galilea, Helder Camara, liberation theology
