    Abstract

    The purpose of this dissertation is to consider how cogently Ratzinger presents the case for the Church’s presence in the world as a liberating force for humanity. It asks: how does Ratzinger characterise the Church as a sphere beneficial to humanity’s yearning for liberation in a time when disgruntlement towards it has, arguably, increased exponentially
