JIMENEZ MEDINA, Luis Arturo. El culto al Señor de las Maravillas, una expresión de la religiosidad popular de tipo urbano en la ciudad de Puebla. Cuicuilco [online]. 2013, vol.20, n.57, pp.279-295. ISSN 0185-1659.

One of the most important popular religious cults in the City of Puebla is that of the Señor de las Maravillas (Lord of Marvels), who is venerated at the church of Santa Mónica in the historic downtown area of the city. In this text, we will present historic and ethnographic aspects of the religious practices related to this devotion, which range from pilgrimages, processions, a variety of prayers of thanks and petition, to ritual practices including magical elements, such as the "cleansings." All these popular religious expressions take place in an urban context and constitute an expression of the currency of religiosity in a secularized and globalized world.

Keywords : Señor de las Maravillas; cult; rituals; Puebla.
