Liberation Theology

Liberation theology is an important and controversial school in post-Second-Vatican-Council theology. It has had particularly widespread influence in Latin America.

In essence, Liberation Theology explores the relationship between Christian theology (usually Roman Catholic) and political activism, particularly in areas of social justice and human rights. Due to the controversial nature of these topics, their place within the Church and the extent to which Church officials should uphold them have been a matter of corresponding controversy.
