TMST 7099 Faith & Conflict: Religion & Social Change in Latin American Societies (Fall: 3 )
Liberalism was a major political influence in most of the new Latin American republics during the 19th century. During most of the 20th century, the church stood itself against modernity and fought against progressive and liberal positions. However, during the Sixties, a very important renewal in theology took place in the church. This renewal had political consequences in Latin America, where wide portions of the faithful and clergy supported progressive theology. The seminar will study the progressive theological ideas and their impact in Latin America. We will frame this discussion in the debate about secularization and modernity in the continent.
