Baha'i Communities of Iran

The Bahá'í Communities of Iran, Volume 1: The North of Iran by Dr. Moojan Momen describes the early history of all the Bahá'í communities of northern Iran, narrated here for the first time and drawn from original sources including manuscript histories, letters, family records, and material previously published only in Persian.


Dr. Momen provides a panoramic yet detailed account of the largest and the smallest Baha’i communities during the period 1851 to 1921. During this time they acquired characteristics that differentiated them from the rest of the population – their ethos and outlook, their system of administration and social institutions – and the persecution they faced as a result.


Using a narrative style, he presents an account of the Baha’i communities in the northern half of Iran, province by province, during the early years of their formation and development. The starting point is the execution of the Bab in 1850 and the holocaust of 1852 when the shah gave orders for the extermination of the Babi community and thousands of Babis were killed.
