Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

Dr Andrew Chesnut – owner of a PhD in Latin American history from the University of California – discusses in detail Santa Muerte, the saint of death. Shrines to Santa Muerte are often discovered in the houses of those in fear of sudden death, such as drugs dealers, prostitutes, prison inmates and the poverty stricken. Dr Chesnut's new book, 'Devoted to Death: Santa Muerte, the Skeleton Saint', deals with this side of Santa Muerte, as well as the Catholic Church's take on the saint and more.
