From a comparative study of the daily life of the missionaries, thepaper discusses how ‘feminized’ and ‘manly’ character, respectively, defineimportant boundaries between Catholic charismatic and Evangelical groups.The ethnographic data demonstrate how certain religious particularitiesof immigrants can act as a source of social differentiation that highlightsopportunities and specific doctrinal strategies for women and men, in thecontext of diaspora.
