Yazidi Black Book

The Black Book claims to originate when the Lord descended Black Mountain. It is not divided into chapters and is longer than the Book of Revelation. The first half of it contains a creation myth, beginning with the creation of a white pearl and Melek Taus, the Peacock Angel. There follows an account of the Fall which the forbidden comestible is wheat and the creation of Eve after Adam has been driven from Paradise. This is followed by the names of ancient kings who belonged to the Yazidi community, next comes a statement of food taboos of the Yazidis, prohibitions connected with personal hygiene and verbal taboos.
