Liberation Theology
(at the Modern History Sourcebook Website:)

  • Pope Paul VI: Populorum Progressio: The Development of Peoples, 1967 [At American.edu] Probably the most radical encyclical ever issued. Vigorously anti-liberal capitalism, Paul VI is mistaken as a "conservative" by those who think only of his teaching on contraception.
  • Pope John Paul II: Opening Address at the Puebla Conference, 1979 [AtAmerican.edu]
  • Far more worried than Paul VI about correct doctrine, but not opposed to social justice. Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Instruction on Certain Aspects of "Theology of Liberation", August 6, 1984 [At New Advent]
  • Gustavo Gutierrez: Solidarity: The Victory of Life, homily on Death of Romero, [At APC]
  • Straight Talk on Shining Path and the Catholic Church in Peru, 1992 [At csrp]
  • Phillip Berryman: Church and Revolution, NACLA Report on the Americas, March/April, 1997 [At WHA]
  • Are liberation theology, feminism compatible? [At UMR] On a clash between US Feminist and Liberation theologians. Anne Geyer: Pope's Cuban Visit Puts Cap on Marxist Liberation Theology, 1998, [At UExpress] Somewhat oversimple column. ]
