CHAIR OF LUSO-BRAZILIAN HISTORY AND CULTURE: IMAGES OF THE PATRON

 12 Apr 2022 - 18:30

Catholicism, royal patronage and visual culture in the Luso-Brazilian world (17th-18th centuries):

This research addresses the artistic consequences of the choice of the Immaculate Conception as patron saint of the Kingdom of Portugal, of the Portuguese monarchy and its domains, with an emphasis on Portuguese America. We focus on the religious, political and ethnic dimensions of this choice, which also includes issues of gender and genealogical origin.
