The Encyclopedia of Caribbean Religions
The Encyclopedia of Caribbean Religions is the definitive reference for Caribbean religious phenomena from a Caribbean perspective. Generously illustrated, this landmark project combines the breadth of a comparative approach to religion with the depth of understanding of Caribbean spirituality as an ever-changing and varied historical phenomenon. Organized alphabetically, entries examine how Caribbean religious experiences have been shaped by and have responded to the processes of colonialism and the challenges of the postcolonial world.
Patrick Taylor is Professor emeritus in the Department of Humanities at York University. He is former department chair and former director of the Caribbean Religions Project at the Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean.
