AMANTINO, Marcia. The Origins of the Jesuits Lands in the Captaincy of Rio de Janeiro and the Deployment of Engenho Velho in the 17th Century. Am. Lat. Hist. Econ [online]. 2016, vol.23, n.3, pp.7-36. ISSN 2007-3496.

This article relates the foundation of the Rio de Janeiro city at the end of the 16th century with the role played by the Society of Jesus in this process. Because of its participation in the struggles for conquest of Guanabara, the Order was one of the biggest receivers of political and financial support. In a first moment, will seek to introduce the geopolitical environment of the locality and the role played by alliances between Europeans and indigenous to the consolidation of the city. In a second phase, will be shown as the Society of Jesus structured in the region, maintaining relations with the authorities and with the residents, as well as their mechanisms of social integration in the economic life of the captaincy by implementing, in the 17th century, the engenho Velho and the production of sugar cane.

Palabras llave : Society of Jesus; engenho Velho; Rio de Janeiro; sugar cane; colonial economy.
