Abstract
The article seeks to analyze the diocesan visitations and how operated the ecclesiastical devassas and pastoral until the late eighteenth century in Portuguese America. It proposes to demonstrate how that documentation was part of the process of moralization and Westernization that formed the bureaucracy of American societies. From the critical historiography of this documental typology, the analysis brings into focus both the question of social groups’ otherness, as the importance of these records for the study of family and mestizaje in the formation of diverse population.
