Resurrection and Renewal:
The Making of the Babi Movement in Iran, 1844-1850
Studies in the Babi and Baha’i Religions, Volume 20
The most complete academic treatment of the early years of the Babi religion. With energy and power, Abbas Amanat communicates fully the sense of elation and terror that accompanied the birth of the New Age. He recounts the full story of the early years of Bab’s religion–the early converts and martyrs, the message of the Prophet, the shaping of the community, and the final break with Islam. A brilliant and important work of scholarship!
