Religions present their followers with a religious world that simultaneously set the worldview as well as the ethos of the community of the believers. The Mandaeans are the followers of an ethnoreligious minority who are originally living in Iran and Iraq. By drawing on the landscape of ritual performance and certain ritual constructs among the Mandaeans, this essay intends to show how the Gnostic Mandaean cosmology and ethos are symbolically manifested in their aesthetic sense and the way they approach their rituals.
