Reverend Father Ernesto Cardenal Martínez (born January 20, 1925) is a Nicaraguan Catholic priest and was one of the most famous liberation theologians of the Nicaraguan Sandinistas, a party he has since left. From 1979 to 1987 he served as Nicaragua's first culture minister. He is also famous as a poet, and he still writes poetry. Cardenal was also the founder of the primitivist art community in the Solentiname Islands, where he lived more than ten years (1965-1977).
