Resumen

MOULIAN, Rodrigo; OLIVA, Iván  y  TORO, Sergio. WALKING THROUGH STRUGGLES AND TRIALS: PARADOXICAL FUNCTIONS OF THE ENACTION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN PENTECOSTAL WORSHIP. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.3, pp.461-471. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562013000300007.

This paper shows the paradoxical nature of the functions assumed by the enaction of the "Holy Spirit" in Pentecostal worship, as a means to manage grief and as a way to socialize resignation to what causes it. By enaction, we mean the process by which human action is imbued with meaning by bringing forth cognitive distinctions to life. Our analysis shows how ritual communication structure, characterized as "rhetoric of presence", produces a bodily presence in which sacred representations find life in "their own flesh". Pentecostals name this "the seal of Spirit", which constitutes one of the distinctive features of their religiosity. The study of context in ritual communication, worshipper’s socio-biographical situations, and dominant topics in ritual plot, shows that one its main socio-psychological functions is to cope with human affliction. Worship helps to lessen states of anguish caused by life crisis, but also, and paradoxically, sometimes, reproduces it, making a causal circle where both affliction and charisma are feedbacked and powered each other.

Palabras clave : Pentecostalism; charisma; enaction; affliction; over-adaptation.
