Embodied temporalities in global Pentecostal conversion

M. Klaver, L.J. van de Kamp

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The body is one of the most discussed topics in current studies of religion and society. Pentecostalism displays a remarkable sensorial and experiential form of religion and is therefore a most interesting domain to study the intersection of religion and embodiment. To avoid the pitfall of taking the feeling body for granted as a prime phenomenological reality, this thematic issue elaborates on the explicit strategies through which the religious body is formed in different societies. The dynamics of becoming and remaining a religious convert are displayed through a focus on the three specific interrelated issues of time, spirits and the subject. © 2011 Copyright Routledge Journals, Taylor and Francis.
