UNVELING ESHU The Guardian of Crossroads

Author: Publishing company: Segment: Number of pages: 176 About publishing company: Publisher Contact: ISBN: 9788556270009 The archetype represented by Eshu contributes to the creation of an affective bond between man and spirit. Outcasts of every kind, marginal in the literal sense of the word – those who live on the margins – the gure of Eshu represents human nature itself with all its vices and virtues. It’s from this affective relationship with the supernatural that Diego de Oxóssi seeks the mythological origin of Eshu and builds a time line from the emergence of African-Brazilian religions throughout the country history until the arising of a Brazilian Black Magic Tradition at present days.
