Spiritual currency in northeast Brazil by Lindsey King( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the spiritual community of the followers of St. Francis of Wounds in the town of Canindé in northeast Brazil. Their tradition involves pilgrimage and the practice of crafting unique offerings in payment for healing and reversal of bad fortune--a practice predating Christianity and brought to the new world by explorers and early European colonial powers. King argues that these marginalized Brazilians, living in a region where poverty is endemic, use St. Francis of Wounds to replace the medical and social services that the government has failed to provide. She further illustrates the evolution of the regional practice with photographs documenting all stages of this tradition, especially the folk art ex-votos used to pay for the saint's intervention"--
Recovery, renewal, reclaiming : anthropological research toward healing by Lindsey King( )

9 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faced with a world that is environmentally out of balance, that is unhealthy in many respects, and that reflects stark inequalities, anthropologists are challenging themselves and others to engage in recovery, renewal, and reclaiming. This volume of Southern Anthropological Society Proceedings seeks to grapple with these challenges head-on. The essays provide wide-ranging discussions of concrete problems, often with a focus on the Appalachian region. Among the important issues raised are the following: the effect of landscape on health in Huntington, West Virginia; food justice; drug use and its misrepre-sentation in Appalachia; the relationship between evangelical religion and depression; the changing definitions of mental illness over time and how those definitions are used as instruments of social control; how the spiritual practices of Eastern Band Cherokees are connected to medical care; and the challenges recent Haitian immigrants face in obtaining health care in a new culture. While solutions to these problems are complex and always have their roots in local circum-stance, the essays in Recovery, Renewal, Reclaiming will inspire strategies that will clear blighted environments, deliver nourishing food, ease the lives of marginalized people, and lead to respect for all beliefs as we work together to bring balance to our environmental, physical, and spiritual health. --
