Abstract

MORENO, Alessandra Zorzetto. Adoption: legal and social practices in Luso-Brazilian Empire (XVIII-XIX). História [online]. 2009, vol.28, n.2, pp. 449-466. ISSN 1980-4369.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-90742009000200015.

In this article, first, we performed a history of legal interpretations and historiographical around the theme of the adoption in Luso-Brazilian society, in the period prior to the twentieth century. Next, we analyzed unpublished documentation in historiography represented by letters and adoption processes for understanding the social practices of familial incorporation of someone else's children.

Keywords : Adoption; Luso-Brazilian legislation; Transfer of property; Roman law.
