STUDIES IN BÁBÍ AND BAHÁ'Í HISTORY, Studies in Bábí and Bahá'í Religions, Volume 1

Studies in Bábí and Bahá'í History, Volume 1

Edited by Moojan Momen

This is the first collection of scholarly essays on the history of the Bahá'í Faith ever to be published as a book. Included are the works of five scholars who have conducted original research on specific aspects of the Bábí and Bahá'í religions.

Two essays are concerned with Bahá'í history in Iran. Denis MacEoin's provocative paper traces the first years of interaction and conflict between the Shaykhí School and the emerging Bábí Movement. Moojan Momen provides a fascinating account of the relations of Christian missionaries in Iran with Bábís and Bahá'ís. The three remaining essays discuss American Bahá'í history. Peter Smith's comprehensive survey of the American community from 1894 to 1917 adds substantially to our knowledge of that period. William Collins offers an in-depth study of the Bahá'ís of Kenosha, Wisconsin, where one of the first Bahá'í communities was established. Finally, Loni Bramson-Lerche examines the development of Bahá'í administrative procedures from 1922 to 1936.

This is the first volume in the STUDIES series and remains a classic work of Bahá'í history. It is a basic text for any serious study of the history of the Bahá'í Faith.
