MARTINEZ, Ana T.. Religión, política y capital simbólico: reflexiones en torno al caso de Santiago del Estero. (Argentina, 1990-2005). Rev. argent. sociol. [online]. 2009, vol.7, n.12, pp. 76-94. ISSN 1669-3248.
Alter a brief narration of political and religious processes happened in Santiago del Estero, from 1980 decade, until the beginnings of 2006, the text opens a theoretical reflection upon multiformity and importance of the symbolic capital in local society, just in its symbolic capital determinations, as in what we could name religious capital. In this way, it suggests the utility of studying carefully the social construction processes of beliefs and the meanings of the indetermination in what Bourdieu calls symbolic capital, in order to understand political domination in the province, and analyse the 90´s events that confronted two agents in this society of Santiago: The one that spoke about politics from the religious side, and the one that had built a religious power from the political side.
