    Religion The origins of the Druze faith can be traced to Egypt in the early eleventh century. Their faith subsequently spread to many regions in the Middle East and North Africa. The basis of the religion is the belief that at various times God has been divinely incarnated in a living person.   “The racial origins of the Druze have been the subject of wild speculation over the years,” University of Haifa historian Kais Firro noted in his “A History of the Druzes.”.

      Here are two recommendations: 1) The Druze Faith: Sami Nasib Makarem: : Books 2) The Olive and the Tree: The Secret Strength of the Druze: Ruth K. Westheimer, Gil Sedan: : Books.   Hitti translated some excerpts in his book, The Origins of the Druze People and Religion as did Bryer in his thesis on the Druze, and a while back, there was an anonymous translation of this epistle published on Wikisource, which also seems to be a translation of de Sacy, though the quality is poor and the translation incomplete.

    "A History of the Druzes" begins with an introduction to the early history of the Druzes, focusing on the religious, political, and social features that fostered the Druze community as a religious minority with its own particular characteristics, facilitating an understanding of the Druzes today. Part two examines the period of decline of the Druzes in Lebanon and the emergence of their . Much like the Ashkenazic Jews, the origins of the Druze people and religion have fascinated historians, linguists and geneticists. For nearly a millennium, travellers and their neighbours have wondered and hypothesised about the beginnings of this enduring people, and their exclusive religion in the mountains of Israel, Syria and Lebanon.
