This following article presents a reflection regarding the particular experience of the priest Camilo Torres Restrepo, who as Colombian, Christian, and revolutionary, undertook a political ideology which lead him into the armed conflict and to his death. By means of the revision his writings and some interviews conducted then by the media, the author tries to reconstructs his ideological itinerary in order to clarify the implications that Christian faith might have on political action. As a core art of this review it is considered his special interest for the problems of violence, which he assumed as his object of sociological research, weighed up as political strategy, and morally evaluated as revolutionary way.
