Lived Religion in Latin America Today

Gustavo Morello, S.J.

Gustavo Morello, S.J., associate professor of sociology at Boston College, reports on an extensive three-year study of religion as practiced by Latin Americans in their daily lives. By choosing not to focus strictly on attendance, adherence and affiliation, his research team noted how religious influences have been pluralized, and religious practices are diverse and occur everywhere. There are no “exclusive” secular or religious spaces, objects or times, and religious practices are not circumscribed to “the religious.”

His talk is one of the Deitchman Family Lectures on Religion and Modernity and part of the McFarland Center’s global initiative on Catholics & Cultures.

*In-person attendance is limited to the Holy Cross campus community. Public access is via the livestream video above.
