SAnngA³ in Africa and the African Diaspora is a multidisciplinary, transregional exploration of SAnngA³ religious traditions in West Africa and beyond. SAnngA³a€”the Yoruba god of thunder and lightninga€”is a powerful, fearful deity who controls the forces of nature, but has not received the same attention as other Yoruba orishas. This volume considers the spread of polytheistic religious traditions from West Africa, the mythic SAnngA³, the historical SAnngA³, and syncretic traditions of SAnngA³ worship. Readers with an interest in the Yoruba and their religious cultures will find a diverse, complex, and comprehensive portrait of SAnngA³ worship in Africa and the African world.See Ulli Beier, The Return ofShAnngA³: The Theatre ofDuro Ladipo (Bayreuth, germany: University of Bayreuth Press, 1994), 15a€“21. ...
