Jayeel S. Cornelio explores the practices of the religiously plural within a single denomination, as well as the institutional pushes and pulls that result from this plurality, an overlooked space within the study of religious practice.

It describes how Cornelio explores the dividing lines of institutionality and orthodoxy, on the one hand, and creativity and heterodoxy, on the other, and explores how “creative Catholics” engage and constitute new codes of religious plurality in the Philippines.
