Essai sur la religion bambara by Germaine Dieterlen( Book )
40 editions published between 1949 and 1988 in 3 languages and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ce classique de l'africanisme est le fruit d'une première recherche chez les Bambara, effectuée dans le cadre des célèbres missions Griaule à qui on doit la découverte des grandes cosmologies du Mali. Peuple de tradition orale, les Bambara ont mis à l'origine de la formation de l'univers la pensée et la réflexion d'un créateur qu'ils ont traduites par la formation de "signes" abstraits, c'est-à-dire par des graphies. Le mythe attribue une valeur fondamentale à la révélation de la "parole", jusque-là verbe inaudible, et qu'il faut entendre comme langage articulé et discours construit. Le génie de l'eau, Faro, qui lutta contre divers adversaires, joue ici un rôle essentiel. Les Bambara sont des sophistes. Leur goût de la spéculation allait si loin, notamment au cours des échanges de palabres, etc., qu'un sage se devait d'intervenir pour éviter les catastrophes qu'auraient pu provoquer les discussions oiseuses sur les situations et dispositions de la création. -- Description from http://www.librairiecatholique.com (Oct. 31, 2011)
Textes sacrés d'Afrique noire by Germaine Dieterlen( Book )
16 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in French and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture, rédigée par J.M.G Le Clezio, indique [extrait] : "L'Afrique est avant tout la terre de la religion. Non pas d'une religion mystique et abstraite vouée aux grandes questions de la métaphysique, mais d'une religion terrienne, liée à la nature, qui s'exprime à chaque instant de la vie, qui inspire aux hommes et aux femmes chaque geste, chaque parole. Tel est le sens de ce livre, collection de mythes, de chants, d'offrandes, de prières recueillis dans le vaste pays qu'on appelait naguère le Soudan, de l'arabe As-souad, le "pays noir"."
La notion de personne en Afrique noire, Paris 11-17 octobre 1971 by Colloque international sur la notion de personne en Afrique noire( Book )
17 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cet ouvrage est le résultat dʹun examen approfondi des recherches menées sur la notion de personne en Afrique noire depuis les années trente. Quʹest-ce que la notion de personne recouvre ? De quoi, de quoi parle-t-on quand on parle de crise de possession ? Quels sont les éléments de la personne qui entrent en jeu ? Quels sont les facteurs déterminants qui interviennent ? Les auteurs des ces débats, pour la plupart anciens élèves de Marcel Mauss, traitent avant tout des sociétés africaines traditionnelles (telles que les bambara, Malinké, Bozo), à travers des phénomènes aussi divers que les cultes funérailles, le cultes des ancêtres, le sacrifice, la cosmologie, etc. dans ces sociétés, malgré le niveau de solidarité constaté, la notion de personne est en effet centrale puisque présente dans toutes les institutions, les représentations et les rites, ainsi que dans lʹévolution même de la société, à travers migrations, apparition de classes, développement des techniques etc. -- Back cover

The Dogon are a group of people who live primarily in the districts of Bandiagara and Douentza in the western African nation of Mali. Some Dogon reside in Burkina Faso. This file consists of 30 documents, two are in the original French. Most focus geographically on the Mopti Region of Mali from ca. 1935 through 1970. General ethnographic information on the Dogon can be found in Paulme and Griaule for the 1930s, Paulu Marti up to the mid-1950s, and Bouju, ca. 1980s. Nearly half of the works focus on Dogon religion and art. Griaule wrote the classic works on Dogon religious thought and myth, which have been critiqued and defended. Griaule and Dieterlen also carried out a sociological analysis of Dogon religion. More specific religious studies are Dieterlen's studies of the Dogon concept of the soul and the symbolism of Dogon sacrifices. Van Beek has written on witchcraft, religious statues and religious ceremonies. Imperato writes on masked dances, as does Griaule in his general ethnography. Analyses of Dogon art are found in Laude, Flam, and Segy. Verboven provides a sophisticated analysis of Dogon ritual movement and dance. Culture and personality studies are found in Parin et al. and Ganay. Other topics included in the file are games, ethnolinguistics, ethnobotany, food patterns, and marriage patterns
