Here I want to bring into the debate on theologies of liberation and the future of Palestine (and I mean “historic Palestine”) decolonising methodologies ... and how history can be decolonised and how indigenous memory can be reclaimed. The lecture will refer to contextual theologies of liberation and the religio-moral critique Michael Prior was interested in. But it will also bring into the debate secular-humanist and progressive perspectives on which people like Edward Said, Naji Al-Ali and Mahmoud Darwish insisted. In a nutshell it is about creating a discourse of indigenous theologies of liberation which can be relevant to; Muslims, Jews, Christians, secular-humanists, in historic Palestine.
