About the writer...


António Vieira was a Portuguese philosopher, writer, and speaker and one of the most influential figures of the 17th century in terms of politics and oratory.

Astonishing prose writer, preacher and the best-known Portuguese religious orator, António Vieira strongly defended the rights of indigenous people, fighting their exploitation. He was called by them "Paiaçu" (Great Father / Father, in Tupi).

António Vieira also defended the Jews and the abolition of slavery.

Called “Emperor of the Portuguese language” by Fernando Pessoa, his sermons, inspired by Brazilian and Portuguese Baroque, attracted crowds in Lisbon.

António Vieira wrote more than 200 sermons and 700 letters.


Some of his main works:

  • Sermon for the good success of the arms of Portugal against those of Holland (1640);
  • Sermon of Saint Anthony to the fish (1653);
  • Sermons about fifth Sunday of lent (1654);
  • Six sermons (1655).

“Men, with their evil and perverse lusts, become like fish, which eat one another … and the big eat the little ones.”

- The "Sermon of Saint Anthony to the Fish" (Portuguese: Sermão de Santo António aos Peixes), Padre António Vieira.
