Ancient Middle Eastern Cults Vs. Modernity

After a rambling preamble concerning the stress that reaffirming identity places on the modern individual in ways that would be alien to our ancestors, Dimes and Judas launch into the lush history of Middle Eastern religious geopolitics with the book “Heirs to Forgotten Kingdoms: Journeys Into the Disappearing Religions of the Middle East” by Gerard Russell. From Samaritans to Zoroastrians, they dissect the beliefs, ethnoreligious histories, and present dilemmas presented by modern pressures that have finally forced these ancient movements to adapt or die.
