Abstract:The four papers in this special issue of Canadian Journal of African Studies on religion and mobility illustrate that devotion and mobility, belief and trajectory go hand in hand. The religious movements discussed are not local phenomena attempting to transcend fixed boundaries: they are transcendence, in the sense that they are part of the borderland between global and vernacular, modern and traditional. A second strand that combines the papers is that trajectories along which religious practitioners travel are not nicely established routes, rather they are constantly 'interrupted'; travellers move between localities, hopping from one hub to another. Such an approach destabilizes the assumed homogeneous tracts along which Africans (or Pentecostalists) venture into the world 'out there'. Introduction: The interdependence of mobility and faith (Katrien Pype, Steven van Wolputte and Anne Mélice). Papers: Moral circumscriptions: involuntary mobility, diaspora and ideological configurations in the Angolan Tokoist Church (Ruy Llera Blanes); Logiques transnationales et stratégies locales: les étapes de l'implantation des religions afro-brésiliennes au Portugal (Maïa Guillot); Mobility among Pentecostal pastors and migratory 'miracles' (Maïté Maskens); Kongo-Lisbonne: la dialectique du centre et de la périphérie dans l'Église kimbanguiste (Ramon Sarró and Anne Mélice).
