I intend to investigate how the Catholic Church reacted to the abolition of Brazilian slavery from an anticlerical nineteenth century.The canonization of Pedro Claver in January of 1888 may have been a response of the religious institution when entering a discourse of freedom to rewrite its past and insert itself in a new future, where state and religion would remain separated.
