This chapter discusses other social and historical factors that undoubtedly contributed to the emergence of Santería. It looks at Regla Lucumí, which is the name of the other popular and most influential Afro-Cuban religion. Regla Lucumí is also known as Regla de Ocha and Regla de Santo, and is recognized as the religion of the babaorichas, iyaorichas, and omorichas. The chapter also looks at the divergent experiences of slaves in the city and the countryside, in order to provide an understanding of the embryonic processes in the birth of Santería.
