  • This article is concerned with the evolution of the Rastafarian movement through the specific example of the Twelve Tribes of Israel. It provides a serious treatment of Rasta theology by delving into the details surrounding the ways in which Haile Selassie’s divinity is conceptualized. Placing the Rastafarian movement within the context of African resistance in the New World, it argues that as the movement evolves, it remains wedded to the ideals of Ethiopianism.
