Description

Devil Worship: The Sacred Books and Traditions of the Yezidiz
by Isya Joseph

“This is one of the only public domain sources of information on the religious beliefs of the Yezidi, a small group originally from the northern region of Iraq. Although they speak Kurdish, they are a distinct population from the Kurds. The Yezidi are notable because they have been described as devil-worshippers, which has, unfortunately, led to constant persecution by the dominant Islamic culture of the region. Yezidi religious beliefs upon closer examination appear to be a mixture of Gnostic cosmology with Muslim, Christian and other influences. They have many unique beliefs, such as that the first Yezidi were created by Adam by parthenogenesis separately from Eve. They believe that there was a flood before the flood of Noah. They also have a set of food taboos which include meat, fish, squash, okra, beans, cabbage and lettuce.

Do they really worship the devil? In fact, you could just as well say that they worship angels, and this might be the best way to spin this for people who aren’t interested in theological nuances, or have no experience with such a radically ‘different’ belief system.”
