Interweaving three centuries of transatlantic religious and social history with historical and present-day ethnography, Luis Nicolau Pares traces the formation of Candomble, one of the most influential African-derived religious forms in the African diaspora, with practitioners today centered in Brazil but also living in Europe and elsewhere in the Americas. Originally published in Brazil and not available in English, The Formation of Candomble reveals cultural changes that have occurred in religious practices within Africa, as well as those caused by the displacement of enslaved Africans in the Americas.
Departing from the common assumption that Candomble originated in the Yoruba orixa (orisha) worship, Pares highlights the critical role of the vodun religious practices in its formation process. Vodun traditions were brought by enslaved Africans of Dahomean origin, known as the "Jeje" nation in Brazil since the early eighteenth century. The book concludes with Pares's account of present-day Jeje temples in Bahia, which serves as the first written record of the oral traditions and ritual of this particular nation of Candomble.

About the Author:

Luis Nicolau Pares is professor of anthropology at the Federal University of Bahia. Richard Vernon is senior lecturer in Portuguese and Spanish at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Review:

In his comparison of Jeje rituals from both sides of the Atlantic, Pares gives the most thorough analysis of African cultural transmission to Brazil since the pioneering work of French anthropologist Pierre Verger. . . . Highly recommended.--Choice
This new translation of [Pares's] work will bring his many insights to a wider audience and will be welcomed especially by scholars of the Black Atlantic not able to access his work in Portuguese.--American Historical Review
The first historical study on the creation of Candomble....An exceptional study...incredibly detailed.--Journal of African American History
