As we approach the seventh anniversary of the Egyptian Revolution, join us for an evening of reflections on Egypt's road to revolution, current state and future. Panellists will offer remarks on the state's fulfilment of the revolution's demands, what is missing, and what is needed to be undertaken and the challenges and opportunities ahead for Egypt to surpass the defeatist moment felt by many revolutionaries.
The Worlds of Mandaean Priests Documenting an Endangered Religion
19/10/2017 9:00am - 22/12/2017 3:00pm
Institute of Arab and Islamic Studies, University of Exeter
Mandaeans, sometimes called Sabians, practise an ancient and endangered religion. Conflict in the Middle East has forced them out of their homelands in Iraq and Iran in ever greater numbers. Although Mandaeans depend on their priests for preserving religious knowledge and performing complex rituals, fewer than 50 priests now remain worldwide. We have interviewed priests, recorded the key rituals and shot documentary films in the largest communities of Australia and Sweden.
