The procession known as “Lord of Miracles” is a massive religious phenomenon that takes place in October in various cities around the world. The purpose of this study is to describe and analyse certain elements of the procession, which champion not only the idea of unity (religious, cultural, ethnical, and national), but also sociocultural differences. Along with a number of practices and talks intended to activate and strengthen the image of religious unity (Brothers in Christ) and national unity (Brothers of Peru), there are certain dynamics that point to differences which call that unity into question. Specifically, we focused our study on two stations of the procession: the scissors dance and the Virgen de la Puerta of the gypsies, both dances for the Cristo moreno. With this in mind we conducted an ethnographical study focused on the processions that took place in Barcelona, Spain, in 2016 and 2017. here
