This chapter explores how a network of religious congregations emerged in nineteenth-century Bahia and examines their social interactions. Until recently, the history of African religious practices in nineteenth-century Bahia was a topic little explored outside the work of Nina Rodrigues, Pierre Verger, and João José Reis. Fortunately, the past decade has seen increasing interest in preabolition Candomblé, and at last a more systematic effort to examine the topic is developing. Police records, including correspondence, housed in the Arquivo Público do Estado da Bahia (Bahian State Public Archive) and the newspapers of the time constitute the principal documentary sources; sources for the first half of the nineteenth century are still scarce, however, while those for the second half are more numerous and consistent.

Keywords:   religious congregations, Bahia, social interactions, African religious practices, Nina Rodrigues, Pierre Verger, João José Reis
