The Afro-Brazilian indigenous religion of Candombl has received far less attention than its sister religions Vodou and Santeria. Johnson seeks to fill this void by offering a comrehensive look at the development, beliefs, and practices of Candombl, exploring its transformation from a secret society of slaves to a public religion that is very much a part of Brazilian culture.
