    :) This is the easier attempt.

    The yellow bits are an anagram. You need to post the anagram, and the answers to all the questions to win.

    There is no prize other than Beta Testing ShaiXWords.

    Do not post the answers unless you have got the answers to all of them. There is no prize for sharing, I just want to know how long it would take someone to complete it on their own.

    What is 2 down? Monarchy?

    I really have to get some work done, and this is going to drive me insane. Can't you give hints? Please?

    Also I keep thinking 14 down is likely Christianity... is it? It won't fit.

    if it doesn't fit, you answer more to get more clues.
    History
    Religion
    Politics
    Science
    Geography

    Those are the subjects.

    I give up! I attached a PDF which is as far as I've gotten.

    Anyone, help!

    (And I'm not sure 10 down is correct as Slovenia was not part of the USSR... was it?)

    You are right, Slovenia most def had nothing to do with USSR.

    Here you have a list of former USSR countries so you can see if any of them fits into that crossword.

    The word is Slovenia. They are a broadway nation from Yugoslavia.

    I was wrong. This is why I am beta testing.

    You gave it a magnificent attempt.

    I note only four wrong answers, but thankfully, after checking the hints, it is not the hints that are wrong.

    Four wrong? I don't suppose you'd be willing to tell me which numbers are wrong at least? :p

    I am just a little obsessed at this point. and NO ONE else is pitching in to help... PEOPLE! C'mon! I'm just one distracted person.

    And isn't it like, 4:30 am where you are or some such ungodly hour? How are you functioning?

    Isis, not Mary (Magdalene); and then Chayot, not Seraph? That threw me off, I have never heard of Chayot and though I'm more or less familiar with Isis, I did not know she could be described as a prostiture priestess.

    Thank you, this has been very interesting!!!!!

    No, but the priestesses of Isis could be described like that. Mary wasn't a Rabbi/Priest (teacher).

    Chayot are the top of the Jewish Hierarchy of Angels.
    The trick is never to assume. Consider all crossword puzzles as a University Essay. If you handed in an essay based on assumptions, you'd be given a fail the entire way through. Research everything, apply reason. In this instance it is reasonable to go back to angels, and since your assumption "Seraph" for "Seraphim" did not fit, to look at how they would have. Christian Anthology holds them as the Highest Angels. Christianity isn't the only religion with Angels. Deva feature strongly in Hindu and Buddhist teachings, Al Qu'ran has Angels as well (albeit as creatures of pure light, whereas jinn are smokeless fire), the Northmen had Valkyries and the Elves. Celts had the Daonie Sidhe, and so on. It's reasonable then to check other religions. I'd personally start with the closest religions Islam and Judaism. I had taken it from the Jewish faith.

    I'm going to make the next ones a touch harder.
