Bibliography

These books can be found in either the library of KTF or ETF (the Catholic or Protestant Faculties, or online through CAS, the central University information system). More specific information and selections that will be required reading will be given to students on the course. You will minimally be expected to read Gustavo Gutiérrez, A Theology of Liberation, and further reading will be discussed with the course tutor (you will be minimally expected to read more than just this one book!). The bibliography is in English only – those who can read other languages will find a lot available, especially in German, in the libraries. See the course tutor for more information. Books are given by alphabetical order of author’s name, and then by year of publication for each author.
