Theologies of Liberation

20 June 2022 - 31 July 2022

The live Zoom sessions are at 19:00-20:30 (UK time) every Thursday during this period.



Theologies of liberation

‘God has a preference for the poor’. Do you think there is truth in that phrase? Could it be true of other marginalised groups? What do you think the Latin American Liberation Theologian, Gustavo Gutierrez, was trying to say when he wrote that?

Through this course, you will learn not only about Latin American Liberation Theology, but about all ‘liberation theologies’, from Black Theology to Disability Theology. The course tutor will attempt to give a whistle-stop tour of the topic – an intersectional overview, but never a shallow one. Participants will gain a deep understanding of why theology which begins with the lived experience of marginalised peoples is so vital.

Although essentially an overview, the course will likely zoom in on certain areas in more detail. The date period given for the course is when you are expected to interact with the online material and discussion forum; you can work on this at any time to suit you. The course will take place over 6 weeks, with one tutor-led session of 1 ½ hours per week and further discussion online in between live sessions.
