A Life in Mandaean Studies

A Life in Mandaean Studies November 13, 2016

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. For Buckley, other areas are the things she has dabbled and branched out into, while the Mandaeans have consistently been her primary focus. Her work has related to both the Mandaeans themselves as living people in our time, and to their earlier history and texts.

Click through to read the retrospective about her. And in related news, Brill has a new book coming out that those interested in the Mandaeans will need to read.
