Pentecostalism and Charismatic Movements

Pentecostalism and Charismatic Movements

Seminar / 30h / 4 ECTS / winter semester Coordinator: dr Marcin Rzepka

This course gives an overview on global Pentecostalism and Charismatic movements. We look at contemporary Pentecostalism as one of the most intriguing examples of the dynamics of religion in the contemporary world. Often framed in terms of Pentecostal explosion and Pentecostal revolution, Pentecostalism is without doubt one of the most vital and diversified religious phenomena worldwide. It is transformative and conservative at the same time. It is both institutionalized and spiritual. These ambiguities make Pentecostalism difficult to capture. Does Pentecostalism show us a new face of Christianity? Is Pentecostalism alternative in terms of culture? Is it the agent of neoliberalism? Studying Pentecostal cultural and social dynamics, we might ask what Pentecostalism tell us about the ontological status and epistemic frame of religion in contemporary world.
