This thesis is an investigation into the relationship between the Liberation Theology of Gustavo Gutierrez and eschatology. I will argue that Gutierrez' writings are a genuine sign of Christian hope not only for the poor, from whom this theology has risen, but for the universal Church. The Church's offical response through the Roman Curia was at best cautious. Though never condemned or silenced, Gutierrez was investigated and the tension between the two is examined.
While acknowledging the originality of Liberation
Theology I will attempt to place it within a historical framework of theological history. A brief summary on the current trends of Liberation Theology will also be discussed.
