  "description": "Religious systems brought over by African slaves in Brazil gave rise, especially throughout the 19th century, to Candombl\u00e9 and other modalities of worship of African deities, especially of Yoruba deities known as orishas. This article seeks to provide a general description of Candombl\u00e9, of its main orishas, initiation rites and view of the world. It also proposes an interpretation of the fact that this Afro-Brazilian religion is no longer an ethnic religion exclusive to the black population, but a universal religion, without racial, ethnic or geographical barriers, a religion that congregates followers of all racial and social groups.",
