Mandaean Banquet

Mandaean Banquet July 8, 2013

One nice feature of the ARAM conference on the Mandaeans is having a banquet one night. Last time as well as this time, it was held at Al-Shami Lebanese Restaurant.

In addition to being attended by scholars working on some aspect of Mandaean life, literature, history, or Mandaic language, some Mandaeans living in the UK also attend the conference and the banquet. They are appreciative of scholarly efforts, whether to make their texts understood, preserve aspects of their language and heritage, or address aspects of the plight of the Mandaeans in their historic homelands in Iran and Iraq, and as refugees in other parts of the world.
