Abstract

The papal encyclical, Veritatis Splendor, authored by Pope John Paul II, reflected on contemporary moral theology, particularly on the theme of freedom. I will discuss the relationship of freedom named and expressed within liberation theology, particularly that of Jose Comblin, with freedom in Veritatis Splendor. First, I will describe freedom from the perspective of liberation theology while particularly focusing on Comblin, and secondly, I will com-pare and contrast this freedom with the understanding of freedom as presented in Veritatis Splendor.
