The paper concerns some crucial issues of theology and cosmogony of the Yezidis, which have distinct parallels in the writings of the ancient Greeks. A startling coincidence of certain topics and the manner of approach can lead to the conclusion that the Yezidi theology and mythology seem to have a distant genetic relationship with the Greek theology, or―which is also possible―we are dealing with distinct independent inscriptions of the same ideas, meaning here the highest factors governing the world. The paper also contains references to similar topics in the literature of Early Christianity and Gnosticism.
