Affonso Ávila discusses the origins of the term Baroque and the spread of religion and education along the coastal region of Brazil, building systems of ethical, moral, and recreational standards starting with Minas Gerais. The essay explores the impact of the four cornerstones of Baroque ideology, what Ávila identifies as persuasive intention and impact, primacy of the visual, geometry of the curve, and rebellion through play.
