A Comparison of a New Islamic Movement and a New Christian Movement in Lagos, Nigeria

Research Interests

Victoria Grebe’s PhD is an interdisciplinary ethnography of religious change and rhetorical borrowings in twenty-first century southern Nigeria. The primary material is collected from her own fieldwork in Lagos, as a participant observer in two religious groups: a Pentecostal deliverance ministry and a new Islamic prayer movement.

Taking deliverance and healing phenomena as its primary lens, her thesis addresses new religious movements in Christianity and Islam, their impact on each other and on the religious and cultural landscape of the country, and does so by examining the triangulations between these religions and so-called ‘traditional’ modes of spirituality.
