Lecture: Voodoo – The secrets of the religion

The origin of the syncretic religion lies in West Africa - today there are about 60 million adherents worldwide. But what exactly is Voodoo, named Vodun in West Africa actually? There is no one who is able to answer this question better than the ethnologist, photographer and founder of the SOUL OF AFRICA museum in Essen, Henning Christoph. For more than 50 years, Henning is concentrating on Africa in particular intensively focused on Vodun for 30 years. He gained access to Vodun through his friend Sossa Guedehoungue, the "pope" of all Vodun priests. Christoph received the honorary title of "Chronicler of the Vodun" from Sossa at a celebration in 1994.
