Vodou Mythology

The Gods and Spirits of Vodou

ERZULIE

Haitian Love Goddess

Also known as ENZILI, Erzili

Loa spirits of Love, Romance, Beauty and Womanhood

This is a feminist Loa family who display every aspect of femininity that could or would be expected, with suitable titles so that you know what mood they are in.

She’s Erzulie Freda, Erzulie Dantor and Erzulie Ge-Rouge. Then there is Erzulie Toho, and Erzulie Mapiangue — and she also stands in for the Virgin Mary, although not we imagine in the Meek and Mild way.

There is also La Sirene which we have put under separate heading. There are sure to be others but this should be enough to start you off.
