#985: Re: #969: Ginen : Grey offers source


<< From: Elizabeth McAlister <emcalister@mail.wesleyan.edu>
 An elaborate analysis of the concept of Ginen in Vodou, and one of the best
 articles on Vodou, period, is Larose, Serge.  "The Meaning of Africa in
 Haitian Voodoo."  In Symbols and Sentiments:  Cross-Cultural Studies in
 Symbolism, ed. I.M. Lewis.  London:  Academic Press, 1977, pp. 85-116.  You
 should be able to find it in any good library.  It should answer most
 questions about the cosmological, philosophical and ethical dimensions of
 the concept of Ginen. >>

There is on The VODOU Page a transcript of some comments about Guinea made by 
the lwa Gran Bwa.  See "What the Lwa Gran Bwa Said", under the New Links
