This postdoctoral research project has as a privileged case of anthropological inquiry the processes of conception, formulation, construction and finishing of the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes - known as the ""Indigenous Cathedral"" - and carried out by the Salesian Mission in the community of Maturacá (Amazonas). With the hypothesis that from this temple an ""ethnoecological religion"" is made, this research will seek to elucidate the articulations between ecology and ethnicity that guide the socio-environmental policies carried out by the catholic church in the Amazon region and, thus, reposition it in the dispute for the Brazilian civic-public space.
