Product Overview

Wedel's account will appeal to scholars and others interested in Santerma, Cuba, and religious healing. Santerma--with roots in Africa and the slave trade and rituals including divination, animal sacrifice, and possession trance--would seem an anachronism in the modern world. Still, Wedel argues, it offers treatment and ideas about illness that are flourishing and even spreading in the face of Western medicine. He shows that Santerma healing is best understood as a transformation of the self, allowing the patient to experience the world in a new way. He grounds his analysis of Santerma in lively and sometimes frightening narratives in which people reveal in their own words the experience of illness, sorcery, and healing.
