This research is in line with the line of Cultures, Representations and Symbolic Practices of the Postgraduate Program in Sociology of the Federal University of Goiás. The objective of this research is to analyze the religious discourse in the city of São Félix do Araguaia in Mato Grosso. the discourses produced by the liberation Catholics and the Evangelical Pentecostal segment. The work will be referenced by ideas of the Sociology of Religion of Pierre Bourdieu, as well as contributions from authors such as Leonardo Boff, Michael Löwy, Leonildo Silveira Campos, Ricardo Mariano, among others. Besides the reference of these authors, Census data will be used to measure the Brazilian religious field. Also, interviews with Catholic and evangelical religious leaders will be held in the city of São Félix do Araguaia with the purpose of knowing the specific reality in the city of northeast Mato Grosso. From our studies, it is possible to understand that a strong readjustment of the Brazilian religious field is under way, as the number of people declaring themselves Catholic declines while the adherents of the evangelical religions are increasing, a situation that tends to remain for the next decades.
