Latin-American Charismatic Christians in Stockholm (Sweden)
This paper will present ethnographic data gathered in an on-going study of these Latin-american charismatic Christians in the urban landscape of Stockholm. It will focus on the ethical and spiritual life they develop in these congregations, as well as on the social work the latter implement in order to answer their specific needs.
This groups are interesting for they have to build their subjectivities at the cross-road of several minority conditions: they are evangelicals in a Latin-american diaspora mainly characterized by Catholicism and atheism; they are believers in one of the most secular countries in the world; they are immigrants from the South in one the most developed countries in the North. The author will try here to analyze the kind of subjectivities that results from this entanglement.
