    Hi folks, I´m just wondering if anyone has experiences with researching Romanian pentecostalism. I did a small research with Romanian immigrants in the Czech Republic and it seems to me, that their religion is crucial factor for their successful integration into society. What´s your opinion?

    There are sparse resources about this topic, so, any comments or recomendation would be great! 🙂
    Best regards.

    Hi Mart

    There are two source of data – one is the book by Barret on world christianity which summarises statistics.

    You could also check the world values survey (or published results from this) which has religious data from a number of countries.

    Religion State and Society (journal) has information on religiou in former soviet block countires

    But in the end I think you have a research topic which hasn’t been looked at in a significant way.

    There is wider work on how religious / ethnic belliefs helps or hinders integration in a migration context, but sorry – don’t have any references off hand.

    Hope this helps in some way

    Regards

    Hi Graig,

    many thanks for your answer. I will check the sources you recommended. I hope that the Journal Religion State and Society is accessible in the Czech Republic.
    I am neither specialist in religion nor in Romania therefore any advice is warmly welcomed.

    Best regards!

    Hi Martin

    The wider work which might be useful would be on how the construction of individual / social identities which might provide a theoretical framework for your study i.e. how does group identity assist migrants integrate into a new society.

    There might be more stuff on that

    Best wishes

    Craig
