Retábulo do altar mor da igreja de Sant'Ana : memória de Belém do século XVIII
Idanise Sant’Ana Azevedo Hamoy
AbstractThe altar piece, liturgical piece located behind the altar table, is a heritage that holds and blends the art and architecture born in Italy in the XIIth century, reaching its peak in the Barroque period as a pedagogical instrument in the dissemination of Christian faith. Used as an artisitic language, it favours the creation of a theatrical stage for the liturgy. Having lost their function since the Second Vatican Council, many altar pieces remained in the churches and have become a great attraction for the community that visits them. The altar piece that we will study is part of the heritage of the Church of Santa Ana de Campina designed in the XVIIIth century in Belem do Pará by the Bolognese architect Antonio Landi, who was part of the Limit-Setting Commission. The objective of this document is to study, document and identify the transposition of this artistic-architectonic element from Italy to Belem do Pará, through a phenomenological and hermeneutical approach whose aim is the comprehension of that artistic manifestation transposed from European models as a construct of the social memory and the traditions of the city, as well as its itinerary through the transformations, the updating of its function and the process of restoration begun in 2004. Key words: Altarpieces. Colonial art. Social memory.
