MAFRA, Clara. The life path that makes gender: anthropological reflections based on ethnographic research among Pentecostals in Brazil and Mozambique. Relig. soc. [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.2, pp.124-148. ISSN 0100-8587.

In this article I return to the debate on the cosmology of the "Spiritual Battle" relating it to the constituting of gender among Pentecostals. Supported by ethnographic data, I argue that a more nuanced understanding of Pentecostal dualism should include, as well as the on-going negotiations founded on relations with alterity, the performance of the relation with an "original source" since, very explicitly, the Pentecostals do not identify themselves as "authors" of the person constituted by them, but claim that they are "witnesses" of the biblical word and "imitators" of Christ.

Palavras-chave : Gender; Performance; Atlantic Circuit; Pentecostalism; Christianities.
