Abstract

GOMES, Edlaine de Campos. Morte em família: ritos funerários em tempo de pluralismo religioso. Rev. Antropol. [online]. 2006, vol.49, n.2, pp. 731-754. ISSN 0034-7701.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-77012006000200008.

This article approaches significant aspects of a broader research that focuses the complex situation of religious plurality in a low-class family network, as well as the consequent transformations in that family and neighborhood. The way how new choices towards each religious confession, specially pentecostal ones, affects the adoption of new attitudes are also studied. The funeral ceremonies of the couple that originated the family network are taken as examples of the tension between attribution (heritage) and acquisition (choice), represented in acceptance or refusal in taking active part in different religious rituals.

Keywords : family; religious plurality; family rituals; exclusivism.
