This Encyclopedia aims to help readers understand the practice of voodoo as a complex, long-lived religious tradition and way of life through exploration of the theology, religious ritual, and cultural impact of Haitian Vodou and Mississippi Valley Voodoo.

This resource also includes two lists of entries, one alphabetical and the other topical, as well as a brief essay on visual representations and an index and bibliography.
