Hajj among pilgrimages
Malise Ruthven, author of Islam in the World, and Tim Winter, Shaykh Zayed Lecturer in Islamic Studies at the University of Cambridge, discuss the contemporary experience of Hajj.
This exploration of the unique nature of Hajj examines its relationship to pilgrimage experiences across cultures and faiths, considering its anthropological grammar and its expression as a ritual or a rite of passage.
This event took place on 23 March 2012.
