This chapter presents a study of messianic leaders, beginning with a general discussion of the supernatural means by which messianic power is acquired and maintained. Subsequent sections explore the dialogical relation between the charismatic and his followers, and the catastrophic consequences when the charismatic’s promises are broken. The case studies focus on Lope de Aguirre, Simón Bolívar, Víctor Raúl Haya de la Torre, Juan and Evita Perón, the messiahs of Brazil (including Antonio Conselheiro), and Ezequiel Ataucusi Gamonal.

Keywords:   charisma, hero, messiah, oracle, visions, Lope de Aguirre, Simón Bolívar, Víctor Raúl Haya de la Torre, Perón, Antonio Conselheiro
