Abstract

The author describes what senses are significant, and how, in the ritual Imperio festival that takes place in the Azores and has been connected with the veneration of the Holy Spirit since the 13th century. This deeply-rooted ritual practice has a special collective value within local communities and is especially cherished by emigrants to the United States and Canada.
