- The Archive of the Diocesan Curia of Nova Iguaçu (ACDNI) is the historic center of the progressive Catholic Church in Brazil throughout the military dictatorship. Throughout its lifetime, the archive has collected resources vital to the study of human rights, social movements, resistance to authoritarianism, and liberation theology. The collection is comprised of 475 linear feet (145 linear meters) of printed materials dating from 1948 to 2015. Most notably, the collection includes the institutional documentation of the Diocese as well as materials produced and received by Dom Adriano Mandarino Hypólito, the third bishop of Nova Iguaçu and one of the Church’s leaders in the struggle against the military dictatorship.
