Thrones of the Gods and Altars of the Soul

Nov 15, 2017
6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
Fleming Museum 204 (Marble Court)

The Afro-Atlantic religions believe that multiple beings live in the same human body. Indeed, priests of the Afro-Cuban Santeria religion, also known as Regla de Ocha, bring to life the gods residing within the altars and within the devotees. Each year, on the anniversary of a Santeria priest's initiation, he or she erects an elaborate altar in celebration. In this talk, senior priest Daniel Rodriguez explains the hidden meaning and the spiritual power of the anniversary altar on display.
