The object of this thesis is the history of the folkloric religious processions Folias de Reis or Three Kings Days in Itaguari, Goias under the title of Miracles and Punishment: myth and memory of the Folias at Itaguari-Goias (Folia do Brejo Grande, Folia Mineira e Folia Goiana). It addresses the history of the Folias from the standpoint of myth and memory, a comprehension of the ritual, and the importance of its narratives and songs. These are fundamental to the myths that sustain and protect the participants and followers, both forming and conserving identities. Methodology included the collection of stories and songs lived and sang by the participants and followers. The theses analyses the sertanejo environment that became first a village and than a city, where the Folias were formed, reinforcing traditional values. It also analyses the constitution of basic myths and the ritualistic parts of the procession; the efficiency of the myths are present in stories and songs (about origins, miracles, punishments and mysteries) told and sung by participants and followers. In addition it details the ritual on January 6 th , the Arrival Day, focusing on Folia Goiana and its particularities in a society in changing process. The myths, kept as memories and shared among people, not only lead to “conservation and dynamic common gestures and habits” but also influence in everyday life, particularly “producing and reproducing social-cultural practices (artistics…) of the participants, beyond time of ritual realization”.
