MARTINS, William de Souza. The pulpit in defense of the old regime: franciscan Oratory at the Rio de Janeiro court (1808-1821). Tempo [online]. 2011, vol.17, n.31, pp.117-144. ISSN 1413-7704.

The article deals with the oratorical productions of five Franciscan friars in Rio de Janeiro: Antônio de Santa Úrsula Rodovalho, Francisco do Monte Alverne, Francisco de São Carlos, Francisco de Santa Teresa de Jesus Sampaio and Joaquim de São José. From the perspective of the religious language employed, the sermons of the royal preachers are analysed, taking into special account the allegories they resorted to and the techniques of typology they show with regard to power.

Keywords : Sermons at the Rio de Janeiro Court (1808-1821); Franciscan Order, preachers; Sacred oratory, history.
