Summary
"African Pentecostals in Catholic Europe describes the fraught encounters and inextricable connections between Catholicism and Pentecostalism. Italy, the home of Catholicism and seat of the papacy, has over the last thirty years become the destination of a significant flow of migrants from Nigeria and Ghana. Along with their suitcases and dreams of a brighter future, these migrants have brought their own form of Pentecostalism, shaped by their various cultural formations and religious worlds. This ethnographic study brings to life the aesthetic and sensuous world of African Pentecostalism in Italy, a world composed of sacramental objects, images, and substances that are often paradoxically borrowed or re-mediated from Catholic aesthetics."--Provided by publisher.
