Bolsonaro President: Evangelicals, Conservatism, and Political Crisis

RONALDO DE ALMEIDA About the author


The article analyzes the articulation between evangelicals and conservatism in the Brazilian crisis. My hypothesis is that a significant part of this religious segment composes, in different ways and intensities, the broader social process that has been termed in the national and international public debate as a conservative wave, whose most recent deployment was the election, in 2018, of a president with extreme-right rhetoric: Jair Bolsonaro.
