"This site is dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge about Bantu religions especially those of the Congo and Angolan diasporas in the Americas. The site is not restricted to any one of these. They include among others Candomblé de Angola and Kongo and Umbanda - Kimbanda in Brazil, Kumina in Jamaica, Las Reglas de Congo or Palo Mayombe, Palo Monte and Kimbisa in Cuba, North American Hoodoo and the Petro or Lemba rite in Haitian Vodou. Some traditions within Obeah and the Cuban form of Espiritismo known as Espiritismo Cruzado also demonstrate significant Bantu and Kongo influences."...

Among others, on this site you will find all volumes of Æquatoria in full text.The history of the Centre Æquatoria began, strictly speaking, at its foundation in 1979-1980, but its origins date back to 1937. In that year, Fathers Edmond Boelaert (1899-1966) and Gustaaf Hulstaert (1900-1990), two Belgian MSC missionaries, founded the africanist periodical 'Æquatoria', which put emphasis on the linguistic, cultural, and historical particularities of the Mongo peoples of the central Congo basin, as well as on those of neighboring populations. Social consequences entailed by the imposition of colonial rule, jurisdiction, and education, and by the introduction of Christianity, also figured among 'Æquatoria''s main topics of discussion. The periodical 'Æquatoria' was ceased in 1962, but in 1979-1980 Fathers André Claessens and Honoré Vinck (both MSC) revived it under the new name 'Annales Æquatoria'. In that context, they brought together all the documentation, papers, library items, maps, and other materials the founding fathers had accumulated during 50 years, and reorganized them. Since 1987, this cultural and scientific patrimony has been sheltered in a new, publicly accessible location, the Centre Æquatoria.
