PORTRAITS OF POPULAR RELIGIOSITY

This page gathers and collects different expressions and celebrations of popular religiosity in the Philippines and in other countries.

Here, these popular religious expressions are categorized under four [4] classifications according to the late Anscar Chupungco OSB.

Domenico Sartore classified the forms of popular religiosity under four categories:

(a) devotions to Christ, the Blessed Mother, and the saints; (b) rites related to the liturgical year; (c) traditional practices associated with the celebration of the sacrament and other Christian rites; and (d) institutions and religious objects associated with various forms of popular religiosity. [Sartore, 233]

Anscar Chupungco OSB grouped them under the following categories [Chupungco, Liturgical Inculturation, 103]:

1. Popular devotions

2. Processions

3. Altars or shrines

4. Religious drama and dances
