Hello, D. I haven't had a chance yet to listen to Miguel's interview with Nathaniel Deutsch, but I did find an interesting article from this past summer, "Ancient Iraqi Mandaean sect struggles to keep culture in Michigan," by The Associated Press:
Many thanks for listing the article. I much enjoyed it. I am a gnostic Nazarean who is greatly interested in all the ancient gnostic sects. Their are only gnostics, no sects. Peace to all! Dennis.
