Research on ‘Pamagdarame’ published in a Scopus-Indexed Journal

The Academic Research Office announces the publication of the research titled “Pamagdarame in the Philippines: Forms, Reasons, and Preparations of Kapampangan Flagellants” in the International Journal of Religion and Spirituality in Society, a Scopus-indexed journal. The authors are Mr. Philip Joseph D. Sarmiento (Chairperson and Assistant Professor, CLE Department), Fr. Nestor L. Sibug, PhD (Chair and Professor, Psychology Department, School of Arts and Sciences), Mr. Paolo T. Lumanlan (Assistant Professorial Lecturer, Psychology Department, School of Arts and Sciences), Dr. Benita M. Bonus (Dean and Professor, School of Education) and Ms. Cristina C. Samia (Assistant Professor, CLE Department).


Prior to its publication, this research has been presented in an international conference at ANU Asian Religion Conference 2016 with the theme “Religious Transformation in Asian History” held last April 7-9, 2016 at Australian National University, Canberra, ACT, Australia. At the national level, it was presented at the 5th National Conference on Catechesis and Religious Education with the theme

“Values Formation in Religious Education: Building Character for Life and Responsible Citizenship” held last April 23, 2016 at De La Salle University, Manila.


After three attempts to publish the study in various international journals, it was finally accepted by the International Journal of Religion and Spirituality in Society which may have seen the value and significant contribution of the research on pamagdarame, a religious tradition for which the province of Pampanga is known for, locally and internationally.


May this laudable achievement be an inspiration to the HAU Community of Researchers to persevere and intently pursue research and creative works in the journey to becoming a research University. Laus Deo Semper!
