Title : H-Bahai

Description :
H-Bahai is the website of a moderated discussion list that forms part of the H-Net discussion network for the Humanities and Social Sciences. The focus of H-Bahai is the discussion of 'the culture and history of millenarian and/or esoteric religious traditions originating in modern Iran, such as Shaykhism, Babism, and the Baha'i faith'. In addition to providing access to subscription services and the message log for the discussion list (for subscribers only), the website provides further resources for research and teaching on these religious traditions. These resources include: a comprehensive resource guide on the Baha'i faith useful for planning courses or for background research; a digital publications series; and a digital library. The digital library contains digitised texts (mostly scanned images) of both primary and secondary sources in Arabic, Persian and European languages. An impressive selection of primary sources in Arabic and Persian is available, including the complete works of Baha'u'llah (founder of the Baha'i faith), Abdu'l-Baha (son of Baha'u'llah), Shaykh Ahmad al-Ahsa'i (founder of Shaykhism) and The Bab (founder of Babism). Some of these works are also available in translation on the website. A clear and easy to use interface leads users to resources appropriate for those with little previous knowledge of these religious traditions and for advanced scholars in search of primary texts.
