Who are the Yezidis (Yazidis)?
We are hearing a lot about the Yezidis (or Yazidis) in northern Iraq and on Mount Sinjar. I'm embarrassed to say that I'd never heard of this group of people!
So who are they? What do they believe? What is their culture like?
Check out these great resources:
Yazidis: Worldmark Encyclopedia of Cultures and Daily Life
Yezidis: Religions of the World: A Comprehensive Encyclopedia of Beliefs and Practices
Yezidis: Encyclopedia of World Cultures
