This dissertation adresses the encounter between the melodramatic imagination and the imaginative structure that derives form the Bible as a way to operationalize, aesthetically, the representation of the espiritism at the movies Nosso Lar e Chico Xavier – o filme. The tangent of these matrices, so to speak, left visible the extent to which religion informs the very language of films. Therefore, dialogical and hypertextual bridges were created. This dialogue, beyond its endogenous and structural nature, were also estabilished with the historical, social and cultural context of spiritism in Brasil and in its originating reminiscences in the nineteenth century. Thus, from the concept of “moral occult”, we testify the operation of melodrama as a catalyzer of an evaluative universe translated from the influence of the “Greate Code”, in other words, the influence of the Bible with its images and narrative structures.
