You can read about voodoo that it was brought to Europe together with the first African slaves in the 17th century. But the truth is that the same rituals identical with voodoo practices were known in Europe for thousands of years BC. And survived unchanged until present day. In less civilized regions of Europe, where nobody still does not know a word voodoo, they perform ceremonies that even Church Inquisition wasn´t able to suppress. Ceremonies which you can feel fear from and that no one question.
