          Abstract

          Este artigo trata do sentido cosmológico da Natureza, em voga na época das representações do barroco (séculos XVII e XVIII), quando aplicado ao contexto novo da América portuguesa com o descobrimento das Minas de ouro. Dois autores da Bahia foram significativos das primeiras visões de Natureza e da sociedade das Minas do ouro: André João Antonil e Sebastião da Rocha Pita. Ambos produziram obras sobre a gênese do espaço minerador, buscando, de algum modo, integrá-lo a uma história providencial da colonização portuguesa. Para isso, investiram em temas e imagens que, além de condicionados por evidentes interesses políticos e econômicos dos plantadores do litoral, refletem os vínculos discursivos dos coloniais eruditos.

          Translated abstract

          This work deals with the cosmological sense of the Nature, which has been intensively studied at the time of baroc representations (17th and 18th centuries), applied to the Portuguese America new context of gold mines discoveries. Two authors from Bahia were very important to the early views on the Nature and on the society in gold mines: André João Antonil and Sebastião da Rocha Pita. Both have made studies about the genesis of the mining space in such a way to integrate it in an opportune history of the Portuguese colonization. To do this, they dealed mainly with subjects and images which reveal discourse links of colonial wise persons, and also which were influenced by political and economical interests of the coastal farmers.
