Title: In search of 'Franciscan' Brazil: memory and territorialization in Friar António Maria Jaboatão's Orbe Seraphico Brasilico (1761)
Issue Date: 2016
Abstract: The main objective of this article is the study of the chronicle Orbe Serafico Novo Brazilico, by the Franciscan Friar Antonio Maria Jaboatão. The article attempts to study the ways in which the chronicle's textual organization contributes towards a 'Franciscanization' of Brazil, at a time when the Society of Jesus, having been expelled from Portugal in 1759, found itself in a very difficult situation. Even though the idea of a 'Franciscan World' has its roots in much older models, Friar Jaboataos chronicle presents a model of evangelization different from that of the Society of Jesus. He emphasizes the territorial dimension by creating a 'geography' of Franciscan churches and convents, thus symbolically appropriating the Brazilian territory.
Description: ES: El presente trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar la crónica Orbe Serafico Novo Brazilico del franciscano fray António Maria Jaboatão. El artículo trata de estudiar cómo la organización textual de la crónica contribuyó a una franciscanización del Brasil, en un momento en el que la Compañía de Jesús, expulsada de Portugal en 1759, se encontraba en una situación difícil. Aunque la idea de un Orbe franciscano hundía sus raíces en modelos más antiguos, la crónica de Jaboatão presenta un modelo de evangelización diferente del jesuita. Subraya la dimensión territorial, mediante la creación de una geografía de las iglesias y conventos franciscanos, apropiándose simbólicamente del territorio brasileño.
