Olodumare: God in Yoruba Belief. Second Edition, Revised and Expanded (Out of Print)
by Idowu, E. Bolaji
Book ID: A6805, A6805
Original Publications 1995. isbn 0942272412. Near Fine.
This classic text is referenced in the bibliography of just about every book written on the Yoruba religion. Late Professor Idowu, a Yoruba scholar and a minister of the Methodist Church in Nigeria, sees the history and ritual of the Yoruba from a theological, rather than an anthropological, viewpoint. one of the author's chief aims is to interpret the Yoruba concept of the supreme God and to explore the relationship between Olodumare and sub-ordinate deities.
Apart from the special merit of having been written by one who knows the ground thoroughly, the book provides a fresh approach to the study of religionin West Africa. This second edition contains a considerable amountof new material -- songs and verses quoted with English translations -- which has never before been recorded.
There are few books on this subject available and none written from a Yoruba viewpoint. Professor Idowu's work should provoke a good deal of controversy and valuable discussion.

The Arcanum of the 'fallen angel' Lucifer evokes such concepts as heresy, rebellion, pride, liberation from the bonds of demiurgic oppression, and impetus for human evolution.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
