Abstract

The article is a brief examination of the beliefs in supernatural and the relevant practice among the Baharvand (Bahārvand) of Lorestān (Luristān) and the Basseri (Bāser ī) of Fārs provinces prior to the Islamic Revolution in Iran. Most of the previous research on this subject at that time failed to note the existence of such beliefs and practices among the Iranian pastoral nomads, mainly because supernaturalism was explained in terms of readily observable phenomena. The author, however, intends to show that supernaturalism has always been a constant element of the spiritual life of the pastoral societies of Iran.
