The Pentecostal congregation’s place within the City: The Philadelphia Church in Stockholm
Örebro University, School of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences.
2012 (English)Conference paper, Oral presentation with published abstract (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Studies of the Christian movements’ spatiality in terms of premises and buildings seems mainly to be focus upon architectural history surveys or analyses of layout of rooms and the interior decoration. Historical and sociological as well as theological reasons are primarily highlighted in these studies. However, they seem to lack the agents’ perspectives on the premises.

The paper focuses on how the agents used and described their own premises and other places (the city's physical dimension) and how they were made a part of the agents’ group identity. This perspective is partly inspired by the theoretical discussion about place that exists in Human geography. Within that discipline place is discussed as an on-­‐ going creation through conjunction of the physical space with human practices, ideas, strategies and emotions.

The aim of the paper is to shed light on the above-­‐mentioned topic by studying the emerging Swedish Pentecostal revival and especially the Filadelfia Church’s in Stockholm premises and use of place during the early 1900s. The study is based on annual reports, the congregation’s weekly and jubilee publications.
