Os jovens "sem religião": ventos secularizantes, "espírito de época" e novos sincretismos. Notas preliminares

By Regina Novaes

Abstract

O NÚMERO de brasileiros "sem religião", sobretudo jovens de 15 a 24 anos, tem chamado a atenção dos estudiosos. O artigo aponta para a conjugação e a convivência entre: ideário secularizante (presente entre ateus e agnósticos); o "espírito do tempo" (presente entre aqueles que acreditam em Deus mas rejeitam instituições religiosas ou transitam entre pertencimentos institucionais) e, finalmente, as novas modalidades sincréticas (favorecidas pela perda de hegemonia do catolicismo e pela globalização do campo religioso).<br>THE NUMBER of Brazilians with "no religion", especially those between 15 and 24 years of age, has drawn the attention of scholars. This essay points to the conjugation and close association among: a secularizing creed (prevalent among atheists and agnostics), the "spirit of the age" (prevalent among those who believe in God but reject religious institutions or alternate between religious establishments), and finally, the new syncretic religious modes (impelled Catholicism's dwindling hegemony and the globalization of the religious realm)
