Liberation theology is a leftist religious movement, in particular in the Catholic Church, originating in Latin America and influenced by the leftist counterculture of the 1960s and the Second Vatican Council (1962 - 1965). It was also influenced by Marxism, and by the 1990s, Pope John Paul II had begun to oppose it by appointing less leftist officials. Jesuits, including Pope Francis, have been argued to be influenced by some aspects.

There are also Protestant and other forms of liberation theology.
