THEO5233
Political and Liberation Theologies

Both political and liberation theologies attempt to provide a theological reflection of the interaction between the Christian faith and the socio-political order, with reference to their particular context. They keep an active and critical dialogue with contemporary social theories. Issues like church- state relation, Christianity and human rights, Christianity and economic justice are their concern. The course not only introduces the historical development and the theological significance of political and liberation theologies, but also explores to construct a political and liberation theology that is relevant to the contemporary context.
