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. It is why human types can "find" themselves; and by a study of the characteristics of their patron God or Goddess can understand more perfectly, the strange moods, events, failures and triumphs of their lives. H.L. Iyalosa Ayobunmi Sosi Sangode brings us face to face with the Cult of Sango, in addition to exploring the universality of Sango's counterparts, Thunder, Lightening and Storm Gods.
