The Babi And Baha'i Religions This book examines the extensive writings and documents about the history of the Bahá’í Faith by Western authors not themselves Bahá’ís. The first part of the book is a page survey of these Western accounts, in which the editor describes how news of the Bábí and Bahá’í Faiths reached.

Bahá'í history is often traced through a sequence of leaders, beginning with the Báb's declaration in Shiraz on the evening ofand ultimately resting on an Administrative Order established by the central figures of the religion.

The religion had its background in two earlier movements in the nineteenth century, Shaykhism and Bábism. Baháʼí literature, like the literature of many religions, covers a variety of topics and forms, including scripture and inspiration, interpretation, history and biography, introduction and study materials, and mes considerable overlap between these forms can be observed in a particular text.

The "canonical texts" are the writings of the Báb, Baháʼu'lláh, ʻAbdu'l-Bahá. A chronology is necessarily a selection of events: no one book could contain every single thing that occurs. A Basic Bahá’í Chronology attempts to include those events essential to the development of the Bahá’í Faith as we today understand it, as well as many which are.

Abstract: The impact of the emergence of the Bábí and Bahá’í religions in nineteenth-century Iran was almost immediately felt in neighboring countries, including Russia and the territories under Russian rule. Those who followed these movements most closely were diplomats, academics, and intellectuals.

Bahá’í communities emerged in Russia mostly through Persian migration. Although some official documentation of the Ten Year World Crusade (and of subsequent plans) has appeared, and despite the historical sensibility of the Bahá'í community in other contexts (eg, the extensive treatment of history in the writings of the central figures; the reverent treatment of "sacred relics" of the "Heroic age" of the Bábí.
