Religion
Spanish term or phrase: caracterizar de gloria
Description of the pilgrimage of the Virgin of La Cabeza in Andújar. Does "caracterizar de gloria" mean "characterize as of a religious nature"? If not, what?

es desde el año 1304 el escenario de la que es la segunda romería de Andalucía en mayor número de romeros y que como CARACTERIZA a las celebraciones de las hermandades DE GLORIA, junto a la exaltación religiosa, la festividad pagana cobra una especial relevancia

Explanation:
What you've got in your added note is what it means (characteristic or typical of celebrations by...). The "gloria" goes with "hermandades"; it's one of the types. There's a whole list of these types here, with their descriptions:

The description for Hermandad de Gloria:

Esta denominación indica primariamente, desde la perspectiva sevillana, una carencia: el hecho de no ser hermandades de penitencia. Su culto es a imágenes que no tiene relación con los misterios pascuales. Normalmente son hermandades con poca cantidad de hermanos, aunque cada cual procesiona un día determinado.

I think I might just call them "non-penitential (religious) brotherhoods" since that seems to be their main feature.
