BLANES, Ruy Llera. O que é que se passa no tabernáculo? Oração e espacialização na igreja tokoista angolana. Relig. soc. [online]. 2009, vol.29, n.2, pp.116-133. ISSN 0100-8587.

This paper revisits Marcel Mauss's classical text On Prayer (1909), invoking one of his main arguments - that of the epistemological centrality of the act of prayer in religious phenomena - as a pretext for the analysis of ritual and doctrinal processes in the "Tokoist church", a Christian prophetic movement of Angolan origin. I will do so proposing a comprehensive approach to the seemingly disconnected categories of "prayer" and "space".

Keywords : Tokoist church; Angola; Prophetism; Prayer; Space.
