Curious George - The Occult in Islam Quid's post below reminded me that I could go here with a question I have been having trouble with. I am in the middle of the research phase of writing a screenplay that takes place in Iraq. Since the theme of the story has at least partially to do with the occult and demon possession, I've been reading all kinds of stuff on the history of Mesopotamia and Babylonian religion and the occult in that tradition as well as the history of Satan, demons, possession and the occult in Christianity and Judaism. Now I want to find out about the history of the occult, demonology and possession in Islam and am finding very few sources at my library as well as online. Does anyone in monkeyland have ideas about info resources on this admittedly fringe topic?
