Creole religions of the Caribbean : an introduction from Vodou and Santería to Obeah and Espiritismo by Margarite Fernández Olmos( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 977 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creolization--the coming together of diverse beliefs and practices to form new beliefs and practices--is one of the most significant phenomena in Caribbean religious history. Brought together in the crucible of the sugar plantation, Caribbean peoples drew on the variants of Christianity brought by European colonizers, as well as on African religious and healing traditions and the remnants of Amerindian practices, to fashion new systems of belief. Creole Religions of the Caribbean offers a comprehensive introduction to the syncretic religions that have developed in the region. From Vodou, Santería, Regla de Palo, the Abakuá Secret Society, and Obeah to Quimbois and Espiritismo, the volume traces the historical-cultural origins of the major Creole religions, as well as the newer traditions such as Pocomania and Rastafarianism. This second edition updates the scholarship on the religions themselves and also expands the regional considerations of the Diaspora to the U.S. Latino community who are influenced by Creole spiritual practices. Fernández Olmos and Paravisini-Gebert also take into account the increased significance of material culture--art, music, literature--and healing practices influenced by Creole religions. -- Product Description

Rudolfo A. Anaya : a critical companion by Margarite Fernández Olmos( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rudolfo A. Anaya's seven novels can all be viewed in terms of the Chicano literary tradition though their rich texts have earned Anaya a place of respect in mainstream modern American literature. Fernandez Olmos guides the reader through Anaya's literary world with clear signposts, illuminating the mythical, cultural, and linguistic complexities of his astounding stories. This work devotes a chapter to each novel, enabling Fernandez Olmos to guide the reader through each, showing the patterns and variations of literary devices in Anaya's works, while offering interesting alternative interpretations of Anaya's writing. Student readers and researchers will find the bibliography, which includes reviews, criticisms, and other secondary sources, to be very helpful."--Jacket

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Spanish expression - la cultura cura (culture heals) - is an affirmation of the potential healing power of a variety of cultural practices that together constitute the ethos of a people. What happens, however, when cultures themselves are in jeopardy? What are the "antidotes" or healing modalities for an ailing culture? Healing Cultures: Art and Religion as Curative Practices in the Caribbean and Its Diaspora addresses these questions from a variety of disciplines - anthropology, holistic folk traditions, literature, film, cultural and religious studies - bringing together the broad range of beliefs and the spectrum of practices that have sustained the peoples and cultures of the Caribbean."--BOOK JACKET
