In this Shocktober-special we dive into the world of Middle eastern folklore and talk about some of the mythical creatures that we can find in places like the Arabian Nights. Support me on Patreon: 🤍🤍patreon.com/letstalkreligion #Mythology #Arabia #MiddleEast
The Nasnas sounds very similar to the Irish Fomorians.
Amazing that the people’s of the pre Islamic Middle East were so much more intelligent and imaginative than in post Islam era.
there is also mention of a dragon coming before the day of judgment. A fight between the dragon and Gog and Magog
hold up, they knew the earth was round back then?
Islamic mythology is interesting.
I must say, using “Arabian Nights” instead of “1001 Nights” is rather problematic. It’s a misrepresentation of the roots and history of this ancient text. It was a mistake on the part of the 18th century unknown translator to use such a culturally appropriative title; and as academics we must strive to correct the misconceptions developed in colonial times up until today.
