    Abstract:
    US-based feminist anthropologist Ruth Landes introduced homophobic ideas into the Brazilian elite's understanding and treatment of male-loving priests of the Afro-Brazilian Candomble religion. This influence helps to explain the relatively recent numerical dominance of priestesses over priests in this religion.
