Lunch and a Lecture featuring John Dechant

Date: 
Tuesday, February 4, 2014 - 1:00pm

On Tuesday, February 4th, CSME will be sponsoring its first “Lunch and a Lecture” for 2014. John Dechant will be presenting his research on Iranian Sufi Ahmad-i Jam (c. 1059-c. 1139). Mr. Dechant will discuss how Ahmad-i Jam became a saint and the large family that he fathered, the Shaykhs of Jam. This family became important local players on the political and religious scene, particularly in the 14th and 15th c. With the geo-political changes in the region at the beginning of the 16th c., their power and influence wanes, but they have survived to the present day.
