Abstract Religious and cultural meanings of martyrdom/witnessing, and their role in Babi history.
Notes Thesis submitted for Master of Arts for the Dept. of Religious Studies (University of Toronto), 1997. Advisor Willard Oxtoby.

All diacritics have been removed. Remarks made on transliteration and examples given in the preface will thus make little sense. Where the original thesis contained Arabic, Persian, or Greek script, I have had to remove these. The resulting lacunae are indicated by "[non-ascii script]."

See also my coverage of Jihad in Sunni and contemporary Islam Martyrdom in Jihad, my Scientific Panel Investigating Nine-Eleven, and MacEoin's The Babi Concept of Holy War.
