How Esu Came to be Known as Satan

In Yoruba cosmology, Olodumare, also written as Eledumare, is the supreme God. Next in the hierarchy of gods are the Orishas. Orishas are lesser gods. They are in charge of certain elements and adherents pray to them instead of directly to Eledumare. The supreme God is only consulted when a matter is beyond the powers of any of the Orishas or when there is a dispute among them. The exact number of Orishas is unknown. Some say that the number of Orishas is as many as you can imagine plus an extra one.
