This article discusses the confrontation between Catholics and anti-clericals in the state of Paraná during the 1930s. It bases itself on Intellectual History especially with the meaning  that the intellectuals’ actions was characterized by taking part in public life, establishing schools, cultural centers, universities, newspapers. The groups analyzed in this text exercised their intellectual functions when they founded the evening anti-clerical  newspaper (Diário da Tarde) and the morning Catholic one (Cruzeiro). In light of the editorials and notes of the above mentioned newspapers it is possible to  state that what the newspapers aimed at was to catholicize or secularize the public opinion in Paraná with the dispute between Catholics and anti-clericals as the background.
