A unique new biography of Oscar Romero published to coincide with his forthcoming beatification (the official Vatican recognition of a deceased public figure ahead of the process of canonisation - becoming a saint). Romero was a priest and bishop of San Salvador, loved for his stands against injustice and oppression. He was assassinated in 1980, and in February 2015 Pope Francis declared him a martyr.

This captivating biography for a general readership uses the author's unique access to the vast personal archive of Romero and the Archdiocese of San Salvador, and draws on unpublished documents about Romero's relationship with the poor, and with Pope John Paul II, and analyses his liberation theology.

Roberto Morozzo della Rocca is professor for contemporary history at the Universit Roma Tre in Rome.
