COSTA, Suely Gomes. Political sociabilities and gender relationships: domestic-religious rites in 19th century Rio de Janeiro. Rev. Bras. Hist. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.54, pp.39-57. ISSN 1806-9347.

This article is based on several sources, especially literary texts and traveler's accounts for the analysis of religious and domestic rites such as the baptism of slaves in exclusively 'black' churches and in the religious education of the prayer leaders, besides others, in Rio de Janeiro at the dawn of the 19th century, as an expression of social politics. It proposes the analysis of standards of domesticity and intimacy patterns in social processes of historically long duration, considering them inseparable from gender relations within the context of social relations, and their relationship with other categories of social relations (class/ gender/race/ ethnicity/generation).

Keywords : political sociabilities; domestic-religious rites; gender relations and other social relations [class/gender/race /ethnicity/generation].
