Tissa Balasuriya (1924-) - Back Return to "Liberation Theology for Americans."

Tissa Balasuriya is a Sri Lankan, Roman Catholic priest and theologian. His 1990 book Mary and Human Liberation was declared heretical by the Roman Catholic church over its discussions of original sin and the divinity of Christ. Balasuriya was excommunicated in 1997, but reinstated in 1998 with the help of public pressure and some compromise on Balasuriya's part. His writings are now reviewed by church representatives.
