Out of centuries of peaceful coexistence among Muslims, Jews and Christians in Palestine, comes this entertaining collection of folklore, written at the start of the twentieth century. Of special interest are the stories of the Jinn, magical beings that correspond to the European ‘fairies’, folk magic and folklore from all the religions about biblical topics. This work covers the entire gamut of folkloric themes: animals, fools, calendar lore and so on.
