ARAUJO, José Carlos Souza. Foundations of Marciano Pontes’ Compendium of Pedagogy (1872): education prepares man for two successive existences, one on earth and another in heaven. Cad. Hist. Educ. [online]. 2022, vol.21, e130.  Epub Sep 13, 2022. ISSN 1982-7806.

This article focuses on the Compendium of Pedagogy, authored by Antonio Marciano da Silva Pontes, whose first edition took place in 1872 in Rio de Janeiro. It is among the first Brazilian manuals of Pedagogy in the history of teaching professionalization, and will be taken as a primary historical-educational source. To this object, some questions are relevant: what is its understanding of Pedagogy? What does it inform from the anthropological, ethical and political point of view, since it has a Catholic religious orientation? What is the correlation of such angles with the triple dimension of education (physical, intellectual and moral)? As to the method, such an investigation proposes to carry out a documental and bibliographic research. In short, such a Compendium is singular in relation to social totality, but anchored the constituent process of primary schooling, of which the formation of the teacher gradually became protagonist, involving school, society and culture.

Keywords : Compendium of Pedagogy; Ethics; Anthropology; Technical School; Physical; Intellectual and Moral Education.
