TMST 8065 Ellacuria, Sobrino, Romero (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Oscar Romero, Ignacio Ellacuría, and Jon Sobrino represent three leading figures in Latin American liberation theology. This seminar explores their converging theological projects, which outline a major trajectory in Catholic Theology since the Second Vatican Council. After exploring the historical and cultural context that shaped the work of these three men, we will engage on a close reading and critical evaluation of their work. Because they influence one another, we will particularly attend to those theological themes in which crosspollination has taken place: Christology, ecclesiology, soteriology and spirituality.

Schedule: Periodically
