The secrets of Vodoo
Milo Rigaud   (More from this author)
ethnologie
 
Secrets of Voodoo traces the development in Haiti and the Americans of this complex religion from its sources in the brilliant civilizations of ancient Africa. This book presents a straightforward account of the gods or loas and their function, the symbols and signs, rituals, and the ceremonial calendar of Voodoo; and the procedures for performing magical rites are given.

“Voodoo,” derived from words meaning “introspection” and “mystere,” is a system of belief about the formation of the world and human destiny with clear correspondences in other world religions. Rigaud makes these connections and discloses the esoteric meaning underlying Voodoo’s outward manifestations, which are often misinterpreted. Translated from the French by Robert B. Cross. Drawings and photographs by Odette Mennesson-Rigaud.
