Chapter Summary

The importance of the discourse about the images constitutes the focus of the present chapter: it includes the post-Tridentine debate in Italy and its reception in Portugal and its colonies. The perception or rather, the different discourses about the images in the Portuguese speaking world and their relations to the Italian post-Tridentine debate were rather disregarded. This concerns today rather less known theologians like the influential archbishop of Braga from the Dominican order, Bartholomew of Braga or Bartholomeus a Martyribus and some one hundred years later the famous Jesuit author Antônio Vieira. In the Portuguese reception by theologians and preachers like Bartholomew of Braga and Antônio Vieira we can not only find a reception of these ideas, but a significant development of its theological fundaments like in Bartholomew or, especially in Vieira, a deepening of these concepts.

Keywords:Antônio Vieira; Bartholomew; Braga; Italy; Portugal; Portuguese theologians; post-Tridentine
