The Worlds of Mandaean Priests

Our project began in January 2014 and will run for three years. News and data will be added to this website as our project advances. The aim of our project is to preserve as much of this religious knowledge as possible by making recordings of interviews with as many of the priests as possible, and of the rituals themselves.

Please feel free to contact us with questions or comments.
