Abstract

This article seeks to answer questions concerning the cultural foundations that produce so much fear that people are willing to lynch and exile family members and other accused witches, fear that allows otherwise committed Christians to carry protective devices obtained from diviners and other religious practitioners, and fear that causes so much disorien- tation and disequilibrium among African Traditional Religionists, Chris- tians, and Muslims alike.
