Bab and Babi Community of Iran

In 1844, a young merchant from Shiraz called Sayyid ‘Ali-Muhammad declared himself the ‘gate' (the Báb) to the Truth and, shortly afterwards, the initiator of a new prophetic cycle. His messianic call attracted a significant following across Iran and Iraq.


Regarded as a threat by state and religious authorities, the Bábís were subject to intense persecution and the Báb himself was executed in 1850.


In this volume, leading scholars of Islam, Bahá'í studies, and Iranian history come together to examine the life and legacy of the Báb, from his childhood to the founding of the Baha'i Faith and beyond. Among other subjects, they cover the Báb's writings, his Qur'an commentaries, the societal conditions that underlay the Babi upheavals, the works of Bábi martyr Tahirih Qurratu'l-‘Ayn, and Orientalist Edward Granville Browne's encounters with Bábí and Bahá'í texts.
