Os predicados da ordem: os usos sociais da justiça nas Minas Gerais 1780-1840

Through an analysis of the justice system activity in the region of Rio das Mortes (Minas Gerais) throughout the Imperial State construction, we intend to clarify its uses and significations for the population, highlighting its presence in the resolution of everyday conflicts among the various social strata. A discussion is carried out on certain aspects of the building of the State related to the continuous process of social order monopolization and control, this being taken as a result of the State's growing capacity to negotiate its parameters through the juridical processing.
