Gustavo Gutiérrez, a Peruvian Roman Catholic priest and theologian, is one of the most recognized proponents of the religio-political movement known as Liberation Theology. Born of frustrations over the failure of many nations in Latin America to achieve a socially equitable level of economic, political and social development, Liberation Theology represents a radical religious response, analysis, and critique of existing conditions. This study examines the radical foundations of Gutiérrez’s works, in particular, his reliance on the work of critical theorists such as Hegel and Marx. It also uses Eric Voegelin’s thought to construct an analytical matrix with which to examine Gutiérrez’s works.
