Through the application of the World History methodology, the article aims to determine the main characters of Christian Liberation Theology (CLT) that was born in the XX century. The CLT is considered in the paper as a heterogeneous theory made up of Black Liberation Theology and Latin American Liberation Theology. In spite of the natural differences that are caused by dissimilar economic, political and social contexts, the two theologies have the same goal, aimed at offering a new point of view to the oppressed communities.

Keywords: Christian Liberation Theology, World History, XX century, Black Liberation Theology, Latin-American-Liberation Theology.
