Chapter Summary

There are certain issues pertaining to the study of Pentecostalism which the author was not able to deal with, or at least not at any depth. The whole issue on whether Latin American Pentecostalism is actually Protestant is one of them. This study has also gone a considerable way towards achieving an insiders understanding of grassroots neo-Pentecostalism. Whilst carrying out the fieldwork the author's aim was to achieve an outsider's insider view of the cosmology and life of a community of Pentecostal believers living at the grassroots level of Argentine society. The main goal has been to identify the principal connection/ s between Pentecostalism and popular religion. Finally the study reveals how the Pentecostal cosmology functions as a meta-narrative.

Keywords: Argentine society; Latin American Pentecostalism; neo-Pentecostalism; Pentecostal believers; Pentecostal cosmology; popular religion
