This article aims to present the role of ethno-political conscientization played, in the period from 1968 to 1974, by the Liberation Theology among indigenous communities of Chiapas (Mexico), focusing on trying to understand the political-theological specificities assumed by the diocese in the city of San Cristobal de las Casas under the Bishop of Samuel Ruiz García - which began in 1960. To accomplish this task we tried to monitor aspects of the transformation of socio-theological thought of Samuel Ruiz and also the transformations through which the Catholic Church passed in the period - focusing on sectors with which Samuel Ruiz maintained closer relations - with the aim of understand how the intertwining of several factors resulted in the options chosen by the bishop of San Cristóbal.
