A escravidão nos sermões do Padre Antonio Vieira


This contribution groups different studies developed by the author on how Father Antonio Vieira understood slavery, and organizes them into five key topics: the adherence to the terms of the Second Scholasticism, the process of incorporating indigenous peoples to the State’s mystical body, the terms used by Portuguese authorities to define the mission assigned to Portugal in the New World, the indissoluble nature of the nexus between convenience and consciousness in the so-called Anti-Machiavellism, and the conversion practices adopted by the Jesuits in Brazil.
