Abstract and Keywords

Lutheran immigrants encouraged interest in Luther on a popular level in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century Latin America. Lutheran institutions have cultivated that interest at a scholarly level through translations of Luther’s works and through use of his thought in addressing pastoral and social questions of the day. A few Roman Catholic scholars have also offered analyses of the reformer’s theology and role in history, from various perspectives.

Keywords: Latin America, liberation theology, Luther
