Resumen

GARCIA-ESPADA, Antonio. Cheese and Beans. The Cosmos of a Twentieth-Century Salvadoran Laborer. LiminaR [online]. 2019, vol.17, n.1, pp.48-63. ISSN 2007-8900.  http://dx.doi.org/10.29043/liminar.v17i1.645.

At the end of 1941, the Salvadoran police, responding to a mysterious complaint, investigated a group of poor agricultural workers. The ensuing process reveals a complex pattern in the circulation of public opinion and social energy among strongly divided social classes. Although the police never completely understood the charges made against the laborers, their suspicious practices were forbidden. However, a thorough reading of the police report brings to light the workers’ attempts to appropriate prestigious spiritual techniques used by the Salvadoran elite. In spite of the fateful ending of the police investigation, the laborers’ strategy prevailed and shaped one of the most distinctive expressions of present-day vernacular religion.

Palabras llave : microhistory; Martinato; vernacular spiritism; popular religiosity.
