Apostle of Peace
A Survey of References to ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in the Western Press
When 'Abdu'l-Bahá set sail from the Middle East in 1911 and again in 1912 to bring to the West the message of peace found in the teachings of His father, Bahá'u'lláh, His arrival was headline news in towns and cities across Europe and North America.
The Apostle of Peace, compiled by Amin Egea over a ten-year period, is a fascinating collection of only a few hundred of the over 2,200 press articles written about ‘Abdu’l-Bahá during His lifetime that have thus far come to light. This, the first of two volumes, covers the period 1871 to December 1912 and includes ‘Abdu’l-Bahá’s first visit to Europe and his journey across North America.
