jorunn-buckleyThe Ancient Jew Review has a feature on Jorunn Buckley, who is quite literally the only scholar whose primary area of focus throughout her career has been the Mandaeans. Others of us also work in that area, but as one among numerous others.

Her work has related to both the Mandaeans themselves as living people in our time, and to their earlier history and texts.
