Abstract

The intellectual and cultural exchange between Portuguese and Brazilians can be seen in various social and everyday expressions on both sides of the Atlantic. Issues related to politics, economy and religion, were some of the main themes analyzed by researchers from the various branches of the humanities, although still present shortfall in Analyses of the republican period.In our doctoral thesis we analyzed the cross-stories among intellectuals in the Luso-Brazilian world, observing the connections between the re-catolization projects of the state and institutions in both countries, between the years 1910 and 1942. With the research, was possible to see the collaborations of networks between the investigated characters and how their actions contributed to the expansion of an international movement of the Roman Curia.The main objective of this study was to understand how the activities of Catholic intellectuals and Brazilian law was used as a model for the actions that were aimed at the re-christianization in Portugal. The intersections between the two movements took shape in specifics of an international standard, but saved common goals, such as the repositioning project of the Catholic Church as an institution active in political and social issues in each country.From a comparative analysis, we conclude that the exchange between Brazilian Catholics and Lusitanian was instrumental in the achievements of the Church. It was through the development of this collaborative network that representatives of the institution resumed their political and civil participation in the two countries, with the recognition of his legal status and international operations.
