Abstract[1]

Portuguese

Foram vários os homens de letras vinculados a ordens religiosas que, na Europa do século XVII, se debruçaram sobre questões suscitadas com a descoberta do continente americano. Afinal, os ameríndios também descendiam de Adão e Eva? Teria Noé aportado no Novo Mundo e deixado parte dos animais que transportava na Arca? Para analisarmos tais questionamentos elencamos duas obras do jesuíta alemão Athanasius Kircher que, no século XVII, publicou os livros Turris Babel e Arca Nöe. Neles, procurou explicar a origem dos homens e animais encontrados no Novo Mundo, baseando-se em uma inusitada interpretação do Livro de Gênese. Por fim, pretendemos apontar, através das obras de Kircher como, neste período, instituições religiosas se ocupavam de temas relacionados ao estudo do mundo natural ao elaborarem modelos explicativos para origem da natureza americana, modelos estes fundamentados nos paradigmas de Adão, Babel e Noé.

English

It was lots of lettered men who were bound to religious orders that, in 17th century, were hunched about matters which were roused with the American continent discovery. Afterall, were Amerindian people also Adam and Eve’s descendants? Had Noe got in New World and left part of the transported animals in his Ark? For analyzing those queries, we’ve included two opuses written by the German Jesuit Athanasius Kircher that, in 17th century, published two books Turris Babel and Arca Nöe. In those books, he tried to explain the men and animals origin found in the New World, supporting his theories in an unused interpretation of Genesis Book. Eventually, we intend to point, through Kircher’s opuses how, in that period, religious institutions engaged themselves with themes related to the natural world studies for elaborating explanatory models to the American Nature’s origin which were founded in Adam’s, Babel’s and Noe’s paradigms.
