Tracy Rollin talks to Thelema Now's Harper Feist about her book, Santa Muerte – the History, Rituals and Magic of Our Lady of the Holy Death.
The book takes a look at Santa Muerte, the famous folk saint widely associated with the Day of the Dead. Credited with wielding vast influence in the lives of her devotees, she is the central figure of the fastest-growing new religious movement in the world today.
This book surveys Santa Muerte as an aspect of the dark feminine, the bringer of death that Is crucial to all life. This perspective is surveyed through the lens of Santa Muerte’s European and Aztec roots, including the Catholic beliefs and practices that helped shape them.
