STUDYING AT OUR ACADEMY
„Teaching and research are the keys to the development of an independent Yezidi theology to exist as an ethnoreligious community in a globalized world. In particular, the main goal of the Academy is to provide the new generation with everything they need to serve their community.”
„The academy should enable every Yezidi to study their highly complex religious contents in a scientific setting. With this goal in mind, we created a pilot project that is unique in the world and historically for the Yezidis.”
„We must be stronger than the course of history. Because the history of Yezidis is marked by elitist leaders as well as by starving pogroms. This maxim strengthens us in our efforts to conduct fair and scientific research into the intellectual history of this ancient community, which has been sparsely researched to this day.”
