The Vicar of Baghdad and his Pelikan
The Reverend, Canon, Dr Andrew White has, over the years, been a pivotal figure in the fight for peace and religious tolerance in the Middle East. Having spent his early career practising anaesthetics, he moved into Theology in the 1990s and was appointed a canon of Coventry Cathedral in 1998.
It was in subsequent years Canon White utilised his pastoral acumen in the promotion of reconciliation in (mainly) religious conflicts across the globe. His work drew him towards the Middle East, namely Iraq, and he had soon earned the moniker, ‘The Vicar of Baghdad.’
