The Past in Angolan Migrants' Conversion Narratives: Silence

Regien Smit
Issued Date: 28 Jan 2011


This article aims to explore how space and time are involved in Angolan migrants’ conversion narratives in two different Pentecostal migrant churches in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. A comparison between two strategies of pastoral care and the decisive role they play in the church adherents’ way of dealing with their past is analyzed through a theoretical framework of memory and trauma, memory and conversion and implicit social knowledge.
