Notes:
Based on a decade of fieldwork in Southeastern Ghana as well as analysis of secondary sources, this book aims to reconstruct the religious history of the Anlo-Ewe peoples from the 1850s. In particular, it focuses on a corpus of rituals collectively known as 'Fofie', which derived their legitimacy from engaging with the memory of the Anlo's slave-holding past.
