Chapter: Marxism and Liberation Theology

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.44048


This chapter outlines the emergence of liberation theology before introducing some of its key voices. The chapter attends to some of the principal features of liberation theology particularly its emphasis on lived experience over the study of Scripture, and for the space it has made for women, black, queer and indigenous peoples to articulate new, more inclusive theologies and, more recently, for the articulation of new eco-theologies.
