With the emergence of liberation theology in the 1970s, Latin American theology made a bold entrance on the world scene. The immediate roots of this theology were in the efforts of the Latin American bishops at the Medellin Conference in 1968 to reflect on the implications of the Second Vatican Council for a continent marked by poverty and social injustice. That conference charted a new “preferential option for the poor,” and it also fostered a new method of theology, rooted in the experience and perspective of those on the margins. 199615 Maria Clara Bingemer;, Maria Clara Bingemer
