RELIGION IN IRAN: From Zoroaster to Baha'ullah

Religion in Iran

By Alessandro Bausani. Trans. by J. M. Marchesi, published by Bibliotheca Persica Press and distributed as Volume Eleven of the Studies in the Bábí and Bahá'í Religions series

A brilliant, even masterful, overview of the religious history of Iran, this new English translation of Prof. Bausani's classic Italian work is standard reading for any student of Iranian religious history.

The volume opens with the formation of Zoroastrian doctrine, pursues medieval Mazdean religion, early Persian Islam, and modern Islam and concludes with a discussion of the Bábí and Bahá'í religions, as Iran's most recent contribution to religious history.

This is a fully academic treatment of the entire panorama of Iranian religion. Bausani was a professor at the University of Rome and one of the greatest scholars of Iranian religion and literature in the twentieth century. He served for many years as chairman of the National Spiritual Assembly of Italy before his passing in 1988.

Recently translated into English. You must have this important work.
