Across the Boundaries of Belief: Contemporary Issues in the Anthropology of Religion

By Morton Klass; Maxine Weisgrau | Go to book overview
ment program (Superintendência do Desenvolvimento do Nordeste, or SUDENE) is noted in Bruneau ( 1974:78).
17.
A chronology of the founding of CIMI, and its significant activities, is given in Ricardo ( 1979). See also the account presented by Antônio Carlos Moura in Salem ( 1981:78-85).
18.
The emergence of the CPT is described by Moura in Salem ( 1981:85-91). A brief description of the structure and organization of the Pastoral Operária can be found in Salem ( 1981:129). Bruneau ( 1974:107-109) chronicles the history of the CNBB and analyzes the role it has come to play in Brazilian politics. For information on Christian base communities in Brazil, see Barreiro 1977; Souza Netto 1979:17-29; Salem 1981:155-172; Bruneau 1982, chap. 8; Ireland 1983; Bruneau 1983.
19.
See Bruneau ( 1974:107) and Salem ( 1981:39, 68, 70) for information on the spectrum of political opinion represented within the Brazilian episcopal community, and for observations on the influence exercised by the "progressives."
20.
A particularly good source for information on CIMI's redefinition of missionization is a special issue of the Boletim do CIMI, entitled "Evangelização e Mundo Indígena," which appeared in September of 1977 and includes a programmatic statement by Carlos Mesters. See Shapiro ( 1981) for a discussion of postcolonial ideologies of missionary practice and a more detailed analysis of CIMI's views on evangelization. See also Shapiro (n.d.) for an ethnographic study of progressive missionary practice, which includes two case studies of missions in Central Brazil.
21.
To give a fuller and fairer account of this situation, other factors must be noted as well. For one thing, from the missionary point of view, studying another culture and another language involves a kind of subject/object relationship that many missionaries find morally objectionable. They have a critique of the anthropologist's role in native society just as the anthropologist has a critique of the missionary's role. Moreover, anthropologists and missionaries alike currently operate in a situation of chronic emergency, where much of their effort must go into being of whatever use they can be in the crises that tribal groups are constantly facing.
22.
This unpublished document, issued in 1971, was entitled "Uma igreja da Amazônia em conflito com o latifúndio e a marginalização social" (An Amazonian Church in Conflict with Latifundia and Social Marginalization). See also Casaldáliga ( 1978 [ 1977]), a narrative of the bishop's political and evangelical activities and his theological concerns, organized around the form of a diary, with occasional poems and excerpts from his previous polemical writings.
23.
What pains a missionary most is to perceive--or to fear--that his mission is over, or that it has no relevance" ( Baêta Neves 1978:26).
24.
I take this felicitous term from Wallace ( 1956), without adopting the psychobiological functionalism that provides his theoretical framework.
