THRS2213 - Latin American Liberation Theology - Vidaurrazaga: Home

General Considerations for your Research

Special attention should be given to the date of publication of the resources you select for your paper. Liberation Theology started as part of a deep renewal of Catholic Theology that took place in the 1960s as a consequence of the Second Vatican Council. As a result, any references to “liberation” in the context of theological talk before 1965 would not refer to the movement we are studying. Furthermore, definitions and explanations of theological concepts published before 1965 would most likely reflect outdated theological views that would not help you understand the authors you will be studying. Historical and socio-economic analysis of Latin American and other “third world” situations has also evolved considerably in the last 50 years. For all these reasons, I encourage you to avoid citing materials published before 1965 in your papers, unless you do it to reference a historic primary source.
