Summary
"Valuable, well-presented study examines background, rites and ceremonies, and social organization of Orisha religion, 'arguably the most purely African cultural practice left on the island.' However, worshipers combine, in varying degrees, elements from five traditions - African, Catholic, Hindu, Protestant, and Kabbalah - to form an 'Afro-American religious complex.'"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57.
