Description

Studies of African-derived religious traditions have generally focused on their retention of African elements. This emphasis, says Dianne Stewart, slights the ways in which communities in the African diaspora have created and formed new religious meaning. In this fieldwork-based study Stewart shows that African people have been agents of their own religious, ritual, and theological formation. She examines the African-derived and African-centered traditions in historical and contemporary Jamaica: Myal, Obeah, Native Baptist, Revival/Zion, Kumina, and Rastafari, and draws on them to forge a new womanist liberation theology for the Caribbean.show more

Review quote

What Stewart is speaking for in a remarkable trans-discipline manner is a revision which allows religions to be able to talk with-rather than howl at-one another. Stewarts scholarship makes a major pathfinding and breakthrough contribution to theological studies, Caribbean theology in particular, and Caribbean studies. * Kamau Brathwaite, Professor of Comparative Literature, New York University *show more
