This dissertation deals with the process of the city Santo Antônio de Goiás formation and it has as background the religious influence in the constitution of urban space and social groups. The theme refers to the early twentieth century when the first migrants settled on the edge streams that surround the region. Thereafter various changes occurred. In the 1940s, with the installation of the Department of Agriculture in the Capivara s farm, the town took off urban and commercially. And in 1982 that organ sold the property to EMBRAPA, which set up the national research center about rice and beans CNPAF nowadays EMBRAPA Rice and Beans. This accelerated the urbanization process of the district at that occasion. In 1990, when it was emancipated, several achievements happened. It also sought to reconstruct the daily lives of people and therefore it identified the group s characteristics that were being formed. In this sense, it was observed that the religious traditions, which are translated mainly at Catholic parties, that permeate group s identity, do not only preserve the religious values of this community, but they renew and maintain Catholic hierocracy. In addition to that, they consolidate the city and the religious territory.
