Resumo: O cristianismo nasce no contexto do Império Romano, tendo a tentação de se adaptar ao império acompanhado o cristianismo desde então. Em tempos mais recentes, o metodismo se formou dentro do contexto do Império Britânico e do Império Norte-americano. Este artigo investiga como o império modelou a teologia, mas mostra também que o império nunca foi capaz de controlá-la de forma absoluta, e que a teologia tem condições de fazer a diferença e resistir ao status quo.

Palavras-chave: Império – metodismo – poder – religião e política – pós-colonialismo

 

Abstract: Christianity was born in the context of the Roman Empire, and the temptation to adapt to empire has accompanied Christianity ever since. In more recent times, Methodism has shaped in up the context of the British and U.S. Empires. This essay investigates how empire has shaped theology but it also demonstrates that empire was never able to take over completely and that theology is able to make a difference and resist the status quo.

Key words: Empire – methodism – power – religion and politics – postcolonialism.
