Project Details


This project is based on the conviction that religion has always been a very important part of the literary tradition in Portuguese speaking countries. Main objective is to explore the religious contexts of canonical and non-canonical texts of Portuguese-speaking literature with special attention to the 20th century. By starting with a systematic consideration of the relationship between religion and literature, this interdisciplinary (i.e. theology and religious studies) project attempts to evidence the high significance of literary texts in the debates about the role of religion in contemporary western culture.
