Abstract

Wills are a relevant source for the study of the relationship between the aristocracy of the Lisbon court with their objects, between the end of the 17th century and the end of the 18th century. Among these, religious pieces are particularly prominent, namely references to sculptures, paintings and other religious objects. This analysis constitutes a subsidy for the perception of devotion, especially female, in the domestic interior of this social group in the Portuguese capital. It highlights the meaning and symbolism of some examples and devotions, evoking gestures of family love expressed in the transmission of the pieces referenced in this documentary source. The origin and the family transmission carried out are explained for certain pieces.
