Dr. Khazeh Fananapazir has been engaged in interfaith dialogue since the 1970s, an interest that increased commensurately with the rise of various fundamentalist groups in the ‘70s and ‘80s, especially after 9/11. His research focuses on two pivotal questions:

(1) Is there any way out of the impasses and misunderstandings between faiths and communities? (2) How can various faith groups work together to achieve unity?

Khazeh believes there is a way out, and that a hundred years ago that way was delineated by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.

Speaker Bio: Dr. Khazeh Fananapazir graduated in Medicine from Oxford University and is now a cardio-thoracic surgeon in Leicester, and a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons. Teaching is one of his passions, and he is much admired and loved by his students. Khazeh has a keen interest in study of the Sacred Books. Fluent in Arabic and Persian, he has published extensively. He is a lifelong student of the Bahá’í Faith, and in particular its relationship with Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
