CAMARGO MARTINEZ, Abbdel. The Path of Beliefs. Some Determinants of Religious Mobility in Latin America. Frontera norte [online]. 2019, vol.31, e1978.  Epub Jan 01, 2019. ISSN 2594-0260.

The aim of this article is to highlight some of the causes that led to the increase of new religious expressions in Latin America, which may be different or complementary to the historically dominant religion, Roman Catholicism. The research uses a procedural analysis to show how a process of religious conversion and mobility occurred in the region. This has implications for the social structure of countries, as well as community identity, the definition of national history and religious faith, which adapts to the present-day needs of the population.

Keywords : religion; change; causes; Mexico; Latin America.
