About the Author: Gustavo Gutiérrez

New A Theology of Liberation: History, Politics and Salvation 124 Reviewè Gustavo Gutiérrez Gustavo Guti rrez Merino, O.P is a Peruvian theologian and Dominican priest regarded as the founder of Liberation Theology He holds the John Cardinal O Hara Professorship of Theology at the University of Notre Dame He has been professor at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru and a visiting professor at many major universities in North America and Europe He is a member of the Peruvian Academy of Language, and in 1993 he was awarded the Legion of Honor by the French government for his tireless work He has also published in and been a member of the board of directors of the international journal, Concilium.He has studied medicine and literature Peru , psychology and philosophy Leuven , and obtained a doctorate at the Institut Pastoral d Etudes Religieuses IPER , Universit Catholique in Lyon.The founder of liberation theology, he was born in Peru, and spent much of his life living and working among the poor of Lima.In September 1984, a special assembly of Peruvian bishops were summoned to Rome for the express purpose of condemning Guti rrez, but the bishops held firm.Guti rrez s groundbreaking work, A Theology of Liberation History, Politics, Salvation 1971 , explains his notion of Christian poverty as an act of loving solidarity with the poor as well as a liberatory protest against poverty.According to Guti rrez true liberation has three main dimensions First, it involves political and social liberation, the elimination of the immediate causes of poverty and injustice.Second, liberation involves the emancipation of the poor, the marginalised, the downtrodden and the oppressed from all those things that limit their capacity to develop themselves freely and in dignity Third, Liberation Theology involves liberation from selfishness and sin, a re establishment of a relationship with God and with other people.Liberation theology and Guti rrez have both been the subjects of repeated Papal scrutiny A Theology of Liberation History, Politics, Salvation was reviewed directly by then Cardinal Ratzinger and found to contain ideas which, in the view of conservative Catholics, were disturbing Although Guti rrez himself was not censured, many other liberation theologians received Papal censure Because of the perceived connection between followers of Liberation theology and leftist groups like the Sandinistas many liberation minded clergy were killed in Central American countries during the 1980s, most notably, Archbishop Oscar Romero.
