Learning Unlimited: Mecca: The most desired and forbidden of cities
Thu, February 15, 2018 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Over two million people come to Mecca every year just during the month of the Hajj; millions more during the rest of the year to do the minor pilgrimage, the Umrah. But we who are not Muslim are not among them, for the city where Islām began is sacred, protected, forbidden. Yet, in this class, we will enter Mecca as virtual pilgrims, following a trail of images into the careful ritual of the Hajj, in hopes of sensing its power and deeply shared meaning.
