Fritillaria Kurdica. Bulletin of Kurdish Studies. no. 3,4

We have pleasure to present the new issue of our Kurdish Studies Bulletin no. 3,4. It consists of two parts. The first one is devoted to the Yezidi topic and presents papers delivered during the international seminar The Diverse Heritage of Yezidi tradition which was held in Kraków on November 13 2013. The second consists of Kurdish and English articles on other topics that contribute to our research project. We owe our special thanks to Professor Martin van Bruinessen for his extensive text on The Veneration of Satan among the Ahl-e Haqq community and to Sidqî Hirorî for his will and interest to explore old and almost forgoten Polish texts and newspaper cuttings on the Kurds.
