Santeria: African Spirits in America

Santeria: African Spirits in America Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Santería represents the first in-depth, scholarly account of a profound way of wisdom that is growing in importance in America today. A professional academic and himself a participant in the Santería community of the Bronx for several years, Joseph Murphy offers a powerful description and insightful analysis of this African/Cuban religion. He traces the survival of an ancient spiritual path from its West African Yoruba origins, through nearly two centuries of slavery in the New World, to its presence in the urban centers of the United States, where it continues to inspire seekers with its compelling vision. 

Synopsis:

'A western-oriented introduction to a misunderstood religion of African roots that is a profound symbol of the force of the spirit against slavery.' -Kirkus Reviews

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 183-186) and index.

About the Author

Joseph M. Murphy is the Paul J. (C'62) and Chandler M. Tagliabue Distinguished Professor in Interfaith Studies and Dialogue in the Department of Theology at Georgetown University.
