Publisher:Editora Unesp

Subject:Slavery and the church, Brazil


"Can a Christian be a merchant and master of slaves?" In this book, published in 1758, Manuel Ribeiro Rocha, a lusitanian living in Salvador, seeks to indicate the "Christian way of treating slaves", from his purchase to his liberation. He attempted to find a conciliatory path between the ignominious practice of slavery, the mainstay of the colonial economy, and the pacification of the conscience of those who marketed and held captives.
