Decoloniality: Theory and Methodology


  • Claudio Carvalhaes



The author describes the work of decoloniality whithin Christianity and proposes a methodology for  this process, naming the work of anthropophagy, perspectivism, carnival and social movements from Latin America. To take on the theological decoloniality option, one needs to re-considere the sources and foundations of an universal Christianity and re-read it from local communities, its instances of power, presences and absences. Influenced by the indigenous poeple of Rio Grande do Sul and the Xingu, Indigenous epistemologies, we are call to dream not only about ourselves, but also dream of animals, mountains, soil, water, seeds, nature.
