Product description

From the Inside Flap

This impressive scholarly volume is the second in the series on Babi and Bahai history. Six scholars have, through painstaking research, brought to light aspects of that history which were previously unknown. Included are articles on the Babi and Bahai religions in India, Iran and America.

The first three essays are concerned with Iran. Juan R. Cole provides new insights into Bahaullahs interaction with the Sufi orders in Sulaymaniyyih during his two-year withdrawal from the Babi community, 1854-1856. Susan Stiles analyzes the first non-Muslim conversions to the Bahai Faith among Zoroastrians in Yazd, Iran. Margaret Caton discusses Bahai influences on the master musician Mirza Abdullah, who was a Bahai.

Two essays deal with the history of the American Bahais. Richard Hollinger adds substantially to our knowledge of Ibrahim George Kheiralla who first brought the Bahai Faith to the West. Peter Smith traces the development and eventual demise of Reality magazine, a Bahai periodical.

Finally, William Garlington examines the conversion of villagers in Central India to the Bahai Faith and compares it to other mass conversion movements in that country.
