New popular devotions

What is it that now constitutes what we once called “popular religiosity”? What is today, the religious dimension of popular culture or even of mass culture? Approaching the unknown but omnipresent is what visitors to sacred places seek that are no longer just temples or shrines, but customary settings. Buildings, streets, urban peripheries, and natural landscapes are often revealed as concealing crusts of impertinent stories, places where to perceive vibrations of parallel worlds. The same would apply to the proliferation of objects that collect and radiate supernatural powers, such as amulets, talismans, new relics, all of them forming part of old and new esotericisms.
