A Global Geography of the Spirit among Catholic Charismatic Communities
This chapter explores the “global geography of the spirit” evident among Catholic charismatic communities. It takes geography as having both literal and metaphorical implications, which thus refers to a figurative conceptual terrain as well as to the physical features on the face of the earth. Both of these meanings are at play in an examination of the “cartographic self-representation” of Catholic charismatics, who draw for instance on websites to exhibit a powerful sense of international presence and progress toward world evangelization. The chapter includes but goes beyond the examination of maps, however, as it traces the workings of the geography of the spirit in the everyday lives of members, their verbal and body languages, and their (often gendered) experiences of space.
