The Wild Rue of Persia

by Bess Allen Donaldson | 30 May 2015
Category: Mythology
'The Wild Rue' is a unique study of the myth and magic in Iran. Bess Donaldson spent thirty years in Iran as both missionary and teacher and in this classic work she records the beliefs and superstitions of the country at a time when they were increasingly under threat from the tremendous changes brought about by the Shah's programme of modernisation. This earlier way of life, with its belief in angels and the evil eye, and with its age-old rituals surrounding childbirth and burial, is recounted in an informed yet highly readable text.
