With the understanding that religious tolerance was a heterodox matter within a reality marked by a unity project between the kingdom of Portugal and the Catholic Church, we analyzed the inquisitorial sources in order to discuss the extent to the “heretical” propositions in defense of religious tolerance were formulated and disseminated in this context. In these propositions, some approaches were observed on this research between religious conceptions that refer to popular religiosity with conceptions of religious tolerance in according to an Enlightenment’s source
