Wednesday afternoon, Prof. Bella Tendler joined us to speak at the Honors Luncheon about her research into the religious practice of the ‘Alawite sect and the ancient text she rediscovered. The ‘Alawites are the ruling sect in Syria, and their history and place in Islam helps to provide a context for the civil war raging in Syria today. A packed house of students and professors came to hear her fascinating talk, and we hope to hear more from Prof. Tendler again soon.
