Abstract in Portuguese
A dissertação analisa as relações entre a honra e a escravidão na América Portuguesa. Procura compreender como a propriedade, a exploração e a boa administração dos escravos deram origem a uma nova acepção de honra, gerada a partir de uma relação interpessoal fundada na concentração máxima de poderes nas mãos do senhor e na destituição de todos os privilégios, direitos e poderes dos escravos. Como sentimento intrínseco ou valorização externa, de sua origem em Portugal medieval até o Antigo Regime, a honra foi se adaptando e se moldando aos interesses, aos valores e às concepções político-sociais dos mais variados grupos. Esses múltiplos significados correntes em Portugal, em todos os seus componentes potencialmente instáveis e dinâmicos, atravessaram o Atlântico entre o final do século XVI e meados do XVIII e passaram a figurar nas obras dos diversos letrados coloniais que, em suas reflexões sobre as relações de gênero, classe e raça apontavam a honra como um princípio fundamental na organização da sociedade colonial.

Abstract in English
The dissertation analyzes the relationships between honor and slavery in Portuguese America. It tries to understand how the ownership, the exploration and the good management of slaves originated a new meaning of honor, produced by an interpersonal relationship grounded in the maximum concentration of powers on the masters side and in the deprivation of all privileges, rights and powers on the slaves' side. As an intrinsic feeling or public valuation, and from its medieval origins to the Old Regime Portugal the honor was adapted to and shaped by the interests, values and political-social conceptions of the most varied groups. Those multiples meanings currents in Portugal in all their potentially unstable and dynamic components crossed the Atlantic between the end of the XVIth century XVI and the first half of the XVIIIth century, being present in the works of the several colonial men of letters who in their reflections on gender, class, and race relations pointed the honor as a fundamental principle of colonial society.
