ARIAS, Patricia  y  DURAND, Jorge. Migración y devociones transfronterizas. Migr. desarro [online]. 2009, n.12, pp. 05-26. ISSN 1870-7599.

This article analyzes and describes the development of new religious devotions in the Mexican northern border and the southern United States since the late 19th century. It examines the social construction of a new religious and votive space in an emerging territoriality outside traditional Mexican religious spaces and images. This emerging territoriality, based on new types of transit, permanence, and settlement in a context less weighed down with tradition led to a profound religious change and a new ritualization and symbolization of space. This article suggests that the development and dissemination of these border devotions is closely related to a previously absent element: the development and popularization of new technologies and the new uses given to communication technologies.

Palabras llave : Popular religiosity; religious change; new technologies.
