Traslado das santas relíquias em Portugal e no Brasil: um fenômeno de longa duração

Abstract

The possession of relics can symbolically project a territory as sacred, protected by God and his saints, through something tactile, visible, concrete, a spirituality that passes through the materiality and divine protective manifestation of a region and special people, considered separate and chosen. Faced with the possibility of remembering the Holy Land (and transposing its relics), the medieval Christian West recreated and readapted in its territory locations that would be recognized as sublime spaces, depositing special traces there, which could guarantee the exceptionality of the places. A long-lasting phenomenon, the transfer of bodies and objects has permeated the history of the Christian religion, since its beginnings. The promotion of cities and sanctuaries, guaranteed by the presence of the tactile divine, produced and solidified the cult of relics. The transfer of sacred remains constitutes important moments in the strengthening of this cult, pilgrimages, performances, rituals and symbols corroborate the emotionality of this movement. In this article we intend to discuss the transfer of holy relics as a long-lasting phenomenon, taking as a case study the solemn receipt of the Holy Relics, which were translated from the See of Coimbra, to the Real Mosteyro of Santa Cruz and the trajectory of Saint Dulce dos Pobres, the first woman born in Brazil to be canonized by the Catholic Church, whose bodily remains were deposited in the Chapel of Relics, built for this purpose. This set of common memories is an identity factor, the product of a forged, constructed and gradually established tradition.
