Historian Roberto Morozzo Della Rocca draws directly on previously unpublished documents – some of which were used as evidence in the process leading to Romero’s beatification in 2015 – to write the most authoritative biography of Romero to date.

Morozzo tells the complete story of Oscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez, from his humble roots in Ciudad Barros, El Salvador, to his ordination in Rome and his eventual appointment as Archbishop of San Salvador. It weaves a sensitive account of Romero’s character – both public and private – with a mature appraisal of his theology and unfailing commitment to the poor, marginalised and persecuted of Latin America. The final chapter describes Romero’s movements and words during the final months, weeks and days that led to his martyrdom – assassinated while celebrating Mass the day after publicly appealing to soldiers of El Salvador’s Revolutionary Government to refuse their orders to kill.
