Update on the Mandaeans

April DeConick has posted two items on her blog related to the only Gnostic group from the ancient world that has survived until our time. The first asks what can be done to help the Mandaeans, and offers some recommendations from Mr. Suhaib Nashi, the president of the Mandaean Associations Union.

The second post draws attention to the recently-published human rights report about the plight of the Mandaeans, whose historic homeland is in Iraq and Iran.

    That’s an interesting blog. She has some awfully formal readers…everyone seems to address her as “Dr. DeConick”. Weird.
