dc.description.abstractThis article introduces Fr. John Mary Waliggo (1942–2008), the foremost Catholic public intellectual in post-colonial Uganda. In his personal life, priestly ministry, and extensive government work, Waliggo built a public theology around the theme of liberation, especially freedom from the paralysis of fear. Operating in the shadow of decades of political authoritarianism and violence, Waliggo argued that historical memory, popular unity, and a vociferous defense of human dignity could help counter the politics of fear that dominated late twentieth-century Uganda. At the same time, Waliggo’s extensive involvement in modern Ugandan politics raises the fear of the politicization of the priest.|Keywords: Catholic, Uganda, Waliggo, politics, fear, church and stateen_US
