Religião e Revolução nas principais obras de Edmund Burke e Alexis de Tocqueville

This paper aims at discussing the relations between religion and revolution according to Edmund Burke’s and Alexis de Tocqueville’s considerations on the unleashment of the French Revolution. There is a rare dialog between both authors made by the French thinker, mainly in his book The Old Regime and the Revolution. Nonetheless, I intend to deepen this dialog. This procedure will make it possible to review the comparisons – between the English and the French Revolutions – made by both authors and the distinct role played by religion in each process. Finally, I try to identify the main proximities and distances in the analysis of both authors on the theme
