The theory of general relativity is presented in the form of a gauge field theory by use of the group SL(2, C). The following topics are discussed: (1)Spinor representation of the group SL(2, C); (2)Connection between spinors and tensors; (3)Maxwell, Weyl and Riemann Spinors; (4)Classification of Maxwell spinor; (5)Classification of Weyl spinor; (6)Isotopic spin and gauge fields; (7)Lorentz invariance and the gravitational field; (8)SL(2, C) invariance and the gravitational field; (9)Gravitational field equations.
