The diffused Pentecostal and Evangelical movements, which gained prominence throughout the 20th century, have already reached a dramatic following of over half a billion. The Roman Catholic Church and the historical mainline churches have joined the fray with their own charismatic renewal movements.

Through this encounter, the event facilitated a unique trialogue along the nexus connecting politics, religion and academic scholarship.
