The Cult of Sango: The Study of Fire : an Anthology
The ancient religion of the Yoruba of Nigeria is one of those great polytheistic, multi-cult, pagan systems. It has provided human society with the knowledge of the vast pantheon of gods and goddesses which actually control human life and who are the causes of its miseries and success. Sango is a divine prototype, a god, a divinity or an African saint (whichever you prefer), to whom all of those born with certain fiery proclivities, certain bombastic temperaments, may identify. This is why African religion has Fire Gods, Water Gods, Earth Gods and Air Gods.
