Religious Pluralism, Political Power and Society in Latin America

The growing religious pluralism of Latin America is bringing about a
redefinition of the relationship between religion, political power, and
society. Shaped by a Catholic culture, the representations of power are
still expressed in a corporatist model of society. This explains the collective
mobilisation of the new Pentecostal religious actors, who are
using their bargaining power with the state in order to fight the exclusive
historical relationship held by the Catholic Church. This raises
questions as to the type of religious secularisation which characterizes
Latin America, and the role of religion in the current process of democratic
transition.
