Abstract

MONTERO, Paula. Religião, pluralismo e esfera pública no Brasil. Novos estud. - CEBRAP [online]. 2006, n.74, pp. 47-65. ISSN 0101-3300.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-33002006000100004.

As stated by Weber, the secularization power of the Protestant ethic would have led to a subjective form of religious experience. In the same direction, the Protestant Reformation would have made more intense the differentiation process of political, economic and scientific spheres in relation to the religious sphere. This would have resulted in the withdrawal of religion from the public space. Taking the religious field in Brazil as an example, this article puts these premises into question. Instead of taking the privatization of religious pratic as a given reality, one should identify the specific configurations assumed by religious forms on each society.

Keywords : religious field in Brazil; Catholic Church; civil society; Universal Church.
