During the slave trade, the Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria were forbidden the practice of their religion by their captors. In order to continue their magical and religious observances safely, the slaves opted for the identification and disguise of the Orishas with Catholic Saints --in this manner they were able to worship their deities under the very noses the slavers without being found out.

From the editor: This book presents the major Orishas of Santeria in their identifications with Catholic Saints. The book has been divided into sections each dealing with a specific Orisha, the attributes, paths or aspects, necklaces, initiations, foods, herbs, legends, ebbos, and other pertinent information about the particular deity. This allows the reader to glean as much data as possible about each Orisha...
