About thirty years ago, there was a deep transformation in Mexican society due, among other things, to the introduction of capitalist technologies and a geographical mobility of population which generated a generalized social crisis which allowed the massive penetration and proliferation of religious movements in Mexico. These were mainly Protestant in its different versions as well as groups of Eastern origins. Somewhat, as a counterpart movement, the “Mexicanidad”-Mexicaness, started to increase in popularity.
