CURA Colloquium with Morgan Crago, PhD Student, Theology This paper explores how existing Protestant groups and newer incoming pentecostal groups negotiated their similarities and differences in early 20th century Brazil. In a predominantly Catholic context, these two groups faced pressures both to collaborate, as fellow non-Catholics, and to oppose each other, as holding dissimilar views of proper worship, Spirit baptism, and miraculous healing. The paper will explore what contextual factors led to cases of cooperation or of opposition, with a view to better understanding the process of intra-religious boundary making.
