### Abstract

We show that the parabolicity of a manifold is equivalent to the validity of the 'divergence theorem' for some class of δ-subharmonic functions. From this property we can show a certain Liouville property of harmonic maps on parabolic manifolds. Elementary stochastic calculus is used as a main tool.
