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.
