SALDIVAR ARELLANO, Juan Manuel. Lived Religion, Migration and Transnationalism. The Case of the Nazarene of Caguach in Punta Arenas, Chile, and Río Gallegos, Argentina. Migr. Inter [online]. 2019, vol.10, e2184.  Epub Jan 01, 2019. ISSN 2594-0279.

This article reports ethnographic findings on the religious assemblage of the Nazarene of Caguach in Punta Arenas, Chile, and Río Gallegos, Argentina, describing a popular tradition that took root in the Chiloé archipelago and then spread to new regions through different historical stages of migrant circulation. It shows how the development of this religious phenomenon led to the formation of communities, the creation of ritual families, the expansion of networks, and the circulation of meanings. In this sense, this work explores how these religious practices established community ties by preserving traditions in multi-sited settings.

Keywords : religion; migration; transnationalism; Chiloé; Chile-Argentina.
