Santo Daime: A New World Religion deals with a young, exotic and controversial religious movement. Emerging in the Amazonian region of Brazil in the 1930s, Santo Daime has since spread to many of the world's major cities. Santo Daime is a mixture of indigenous, popular Catholic, Afro-Brazilian, esoteric, Spiritist, and new age practices and beliefs. The centre piece of ritual and belief is the consumption of a psychotropic beverage called 'Daime' which members regard as helping humankind's interaction with the supernatural world. Because Daime is treated as an illegal narcotic in most parts of the world, outside of its Brazilian homeland Santo Daime rituals are practised clandestinely. Uniting extensive fieldwork experience with an established theoretical background, this book makes a significant contribution to understanding a range of issues relating to religion and modernity, including religious hybridism, religious individualism, globalizing religion, fundamentalist belief systems, religious economy, and secularization-sacrilization debates. An accessible and multi-disciplinary book, Santo Daime: A New World Religion is suitable for undergraduate students in Religious Studies, Sociology of Religion, Anthropology and Latin American Studies. >
