    Yezidi Mythology. Some Yezidi mythology has been translated into English and other languages. So far there are two parts roughly translated — The Revelation and The Black Book. The Revelation mainly consists of God speaking to the Yezidi about who he is and who they are in relation to him. However, The Black Book contains more of the creation and history stories of Yezidism.   The Black Book of the Yezidis was first published in English over years ago. Since then it has garnered much critical attention by ethnologists and theologians, receiving condemnation in some quarters as a fake, and in others a nod of approval as being possibly the only legitimate text (along with the Book of the Revelation) that gives some insight into these remarkable people and their /5(2).

The book covers the history, beliefs, practices, and material culture of the Yezidis. Other content include illustrations, photos, maps, notes, a glossary, a bibliography and appendices filled with invaluable information like Yezidi saints and genealogies of influential families/5(19).

This specific work covers the Black Book of the Yezidis (Meshaf Resh). The book has a informative introduction detailing the history and of the Meshaf Resh and some background on the Yezidis. The book also has many notes, a extensive bibliography for further study, and a reproduction of the original Arabic manuscript witten in the 's.

However, this book has a few problems/5(2). The book was well written, I enjoyed reading about Dr. Acikyildiz's journey to Iraq and other Yazidi territories, the first half of the book was a particularly enjoyable read.

The second part focussed mostly on arts and architecture surrounding the Yazidi buildings and their faith/5. Birgul Acikyildiz offers a comprehensive appraisal of Yezidi religion, society and culture. Written without presupposing any prior knowledge about Yezidism, and in an accessible and readable style, her book examines Yezidis not only from a religious point.

The Religion of the Peacock Angel: The Yezidis and Their Spirit World Garnik S. Asatrian, Victoria Arakelova Based in Iraq, Syria and Turkey, the Yezidi people claim their religion - a unique combination of Christian, Islamic, and historical faiths - to be the oldest in the world.

The Yezidis “When you kill someone, you kill yourself” Yezidi Faqir. Who Are the Yezidis. The Yezidis book Yezidis or Yazidis are a Kurdish speaking people who live principally in northern Iraq. They number approximatelyThey are mostly a poor and oppressed people, but they have a rich spiritual tradition that they contend is the world’s oldest.

For centuries, Yezidi believers, have followed the simple command of the Kitab al-Jilwa, also known as The Book of Revelation, to “honor my symbol and my image.” Who exactly are these people and what is the image that they honor. The answer depends on who is asked. Amongst their closest neighbors, Yezidis are sometimes known as Devil-Worshippers.

Her book is the first to place Yezidism in its complete geographical setting in Northern Iraq, Turkey, Syria and author describes the Yezidi belief system (which considers Tawusi Melek - the 'Peacock Angel' - to be ruler of the earth) and its religious practices and observances, analysing the most important facets of Yezidi.

The Yezidis, an ancient enigmatic Kurdish mountain people, are considered one of the oldest ethnicities in the Middle East, and often derided as 'devil-worshippers’. Distinct from the majority Sunni Kurds, Yezidis’ religion evolved through a fusion of Sufism with earlier religious beliefs indigenous to the region, including Zoroastrian, Jewish, Gnostic and Christian motifs.

The Yazīdī religious centre and object of the annual pilgrimage is the tomb of Sheikh ʿAdī, in the town of Lālish, Iraq. Two short books, Kitāb al-jilwah (“Book of Revelation”) and Maṣḥafrash (“Black Book”), form the sacred scriptures of the Yazīdīs.

It is now widely suspected that. Yazidis (also written as Yezidis (/ j ə ˈ z iː d iː z / (), Kurdish: ئێزیدی/Êzîdî ‎) are an endogamous and mostly Kurmanji-speaking group of contested ethnic origin, indigenous to Iraq, Syria, and Turkey. The majority of Yazidis remaining in the Middle East today live in Iraq, primarily in the Nineveh and Dohuk governorates.
