Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? 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 jilqah 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 beliefs. The editor has done an outstanding job in compiling six different translations and providing exhaustive notes. His introduction explains how this short text has been perceived by the outside world and believes it should be taken more seriously as it in essence contains a grain of truth.
An extensive bibliography is also provided for those who may wish biok do some further research into the Yezidis who are now being forced to scatter abroad, far from their homeland of Iraq, thanks to the ongoing political turmoil in their country. Hopefully this book will compensate for any injustices they have already suffered, and will enable others to view them with a deeper appreciation.

There are very little resource devoted to the Kurdish Yezidi peoples much less their sacred scriptures so this book is a must read for those interested. 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. The author is not a scholar, philologist, historian, nor a ethnologist, etc. The book deploys other self-styled ‘experts’ but all are New Age personalities.
The Al Jilwah; The Black Book of Satan
Throughout the book, the author constantly quotes or mentions New Age figures of the past to present Which has nothing to do with Yezidism. As a student of Iranian Studies currently studying the Yezidi and Shabaki people, I found this book to be more useful as a guide to other works on the Yezidis actually written by gook. Overall, a nice addition for a lay reader or New Ager but better as a rough guide to better works for students.
