Synopsis: This book is a part of the Ritual Studies Monograph Series.

Resisting State Iconoclasm among the Loma of Guinea is an anthropological study of a West African people's ongoing commitment to a specific religious tradition.

Loma secret religious practice appears to have been relatively unaffected by a long-term suppression by the postcolonial authorities. In recent years the famous male ritual association known as Poro has even taken on new significance in the context of political upheaval in the war-torn border area between Guinea and Liberia.

Against presentist accounts of persistent culture, it is argued that an adequate explanation of Loma religious resilience requires a composite approach addressing both the socio-political dynamics of the studied area and the cognitive processes involved in the transmission of religious and ritual tradition.

About the Author: Christian Hojbjerg is a professor of ethnology at the SAXO Institute, University of Copenhagen.
