Abstract

It can be exceedingly difficult to piece together the history of popular religious movements and even more challenging to situate their emergence and development within larger societies. In From Fanatics to Folk, Patricia Pessar succeeds admirably in her analysis of the relatively unknown 20th century millenarian movement that was inspired by a man named Pedro Batista in Brazil’s storied northeastern backlands.
