Anthropologie d'un musée silencieux : la Collection Persévérance et les enjeux de mémoire autour du "xangô alagoano" (Maceió - Brésil)

Abstract : The central object of this thesis is the “Persévérance” Collection, a group of pieces that were stolen from Afro-Brazilian houses of worship in Maceió, capital of the state of Alagoas, in the northeast of Brazil. The pillaging of these objects occurred in an episode of political-religious repression in 1912, known as Quebra de Xangô. This Collection is exposed by the Museum of the Historical and Geographical Institute of Alagoas and since its pillage it has not been subject of any scientific studies. In this way, this research has tried to fill the existing gaps on the subject, tracing its path so far and demonstrating the great transformations experienced by the worship of xangô alagoano, both at the liturgical and ritual levels. For the production of those objects inventory an investigation was carried out to try to find the original uses and toproperly reference the pieces. This investigation was produced with the participation of the Afro-Brazilian religious community, focusing on their traditional knowledge, mythology and cosmological system to discover and construct the biography of those objects. Therefore, the xangô alagoano is presented here, tracing its peculiarities, fruit of my ten years of field experience.
