TH 264 - Theologies of Liberation(GD)

3.00 Cr
Ethical Reasoning, Faith & Reason-Theology. This course first examines the beginnings of Liberation Theology in Latin America and critically considers how this has both challenged and nourished the Christian tradition and the fundaments of theology therein. The course will then examine how this has begun to blossom into a rich variety of 'theologies of liberation' in diverse contexts throughout the world. In this context, the course explores new ways of (re)thinking Christianity as fruitfully engaging the world by 'building of the Kingdom of God' in and through the 'option for the poor'.
