Tahirih in History: Perspectives On Qurratu’l-‘Ayn From East And West
Studies in the Bábí and Bahá’í Religions, Volume 16
One hundred and fifty years ago, Tahirih stunned Iran and shocked her fellow believers by removing her veil in the company of men at the conference of Badasht. This volume is a compilation of historical work that has been written about her in the years since. It brings together most of what we know about Tahirih Qurratu’l-‘Ayn.
Included is history from Baha’i sources: ‘Abdu’l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi; the work of scholars in India and Pakistan, where Tahirih’s work is well known; and essays by Western scholars, such as E. G. Browne, A.-L.-M. Nicolas (translated from French), Abbas Amanat, Farzaneh Milani, and others. Many of these are new research published in this volume for the first time.
An essential book for anyone interested in Tahirih!
Edited by Sabir Afaqi with the assistance of Jan Teofil Jasion.
