80% of Brazilians are Catholic. That said, the animist religions of African origin brought by black slaves and preserved by their descendants find many followers and are part of the landscape.
The official percentage of 13% of practitioners of these religions is misleading because, in Brazil, being Catholic in no way prevents you from actively participating in the macumbas, these magnificent and bewitching rituals during which the gods manifest themselves by borrowing the body of a faith in a trance.
Believers consider that the god is really present among them during this trance; they therefore ask for his help in dealing with the most diverse and daily problems. Among these religions, we must distinguish Candomblé and Umbanda.
Candomblé is the religion of the Yorubas, an African people from the Niger Delta. The Umbanda mixes African religion with both Christian and Indian elements.
We can, in the latter case, speak of a real Afro-Brazilian cult. Alongside Catholicism and these African religions, Brazil has a fairly large Protestant community as well as small Jewish, Muslim and Buddhist communities. We will note the growing importance that the evangelist sects have taken over the past few years, whose perceptible fundamentalism seduces the poorest populations of the big cities.
