Podcast: Start-Up Nation for the Humanities

(October 7, 2016)

The Baha'i: Yet another world religion based in the Holy Land.

Dr. D Gershon Lewental, an Israel Studies professor at the University of Oklahoma, gives host Gilad Halpern an overview of the Baha'i religion - an offshoot of Shi'a Islam that set up shop in the Holy Land (albeit not in Jerusalem, thankfully). They discuss its relationship with the local ethnic groups under the different regimes.
