Buddhist Dictionary by NYANATILOKA MAHATHERA
paññā-vimutti:'deliverance through wisdom' (or understanding'),signifies,according to Com.to A.V,142,the wisdom associated with the fruition of holiness (Arahatta-phala).In Pug.31 and similarly in M.70,it is said:A monk may not have reached in his own person the 8 liberations (=jhāna,q.v.),but through his wisdom the cankers have come to extinction in him.Such a person is called wisdom-liberated" (paññā-vimutta).- Com.to Pug.:He may be one of five persons:either a practiser of bare insight (sukkha-vipassako,q.v.),or one who has attained to Holiness after rising from one of the absorptions." See S.XII,7().

The term is often linked with ceto-vimutti (q.v.),'deliverance of mind'.
