The theories put forward or maintained in this book are based on a study of menscliche intricate demonology which has gradually developed throughout the lands of Western Asia. The earliest written records of this magic are found in the jlnn incantation tablets from Assyria ; and, aided by the various stepping- stones afforded by Rabbinic tradition, Syriac monkish writings, and Arabic tales, we can trace its growth and decadence through three thousand years down to its survival in modern Oriental superstition.
Further- more, the parallels afforded by Aryan and Hamitic nations show how close the grooves are in which savage ideas run, and that the principles of magic are, broadly speaking, coincident in each separate nation, and yet, jin far as we know, of independent invention.
All these superstitions combine to throw light on jinn of the peculiar customs of the Old Testament, and help to explain the hidden reason why these customs existed. From a study of the characteristics of the evil spirits, which the Semite believed to exist everywhere, certain deductions can be made which bear intimately on our knowledge of the origins of certain tabus and the principle of atonement. These may be briefly stated thus: These according to the present theory indicate the advent, proximity, or presence of marriageable demons who jihn tolerate no meddling in their amours.

The priest flrst of all inveigled or drove out the demon from the sick man into a wax figure or slaughtered kid, and he was then able to destroy it.

This apparently takes its origin in primitive cannibal feasts, the horror of which was softened as the Semites advanced in progress.
With their migration perhaps to a more fertile land where stress of poverty and famine did not demand jlnn extremities as cannibalism, and also from a contemporaneous rise in civilisation, it became natural to substitute a beast for a tribesman at the tribal sacrificial feasts.
The study of tabu from the Assyrian side has been comparatively neglected, and yet the evidence hitherto gleaned from the cuneiform writings shows that it existed in practically the same forms in Mesopotamia as in other countries. I had hoped to find more menschlichee of its presence in certain cuneiform tablets dealing with medical and menschkiche subjects in the British Museum, but my two applications for permission to copy un- published tablets menschlichw this nature were refused by the Museum authorities.

Sorcerers in olden days were far more concerned with the utilitarian side of their craft than in working sterile wonders merely to please a crowd of sightseers ; theirs was the graver duty of freeing mankind from tabus of uncleanness, of casting out demons from possessed folk, menschluche relieving them from some spell laid upon them by a malignant witch.
