Bogum and Roça de Cima

The Parallel History of Two Jeje Terreiros in the Second Half of the Nineteenth Century

(p.124) 5 Bogum and Roça de Cima
The Formation of Candomblé

This chapter examines historical information from the second half of the nineteenth century regarding two Jeje terreiros: Bogum in Salvador and the terreiro known as Roça de Cima (which could be translated roughly as “the upper farm”) in Cachoeira. Seja Hundé (also known as Roça do Ventura) arose from Roça de Cima at the end of the century. The two terreiros maintained close ties until around the 1950s. The data in this chapter comes in part from the scanty bibliography available, but it derives principally from the historical documents the author was able to find in notary records and archives, from certain reports in O Alabama, and from surveys of the Jeje oral tradition that the author has collected over the past seven years.

Keywords:   Jeje terreiros, Bogum, Roça de Cima, Seja Hundé, Jeje oral tradition
