As a result of the field study conducted in Zile district, it was found that most of the folk beliefs compiled were similar and some of them lived only in Alevi or Sunni villages. In this study, the reasons of this difference in the context of folk beliefs are emphasized and especially the beliefs found only in Alevi / S?rac villages are exemplified. The sources of these beliefs which were identified in Alevi / S?rac villages and not found in Sunni villages were discussed.
