Abstract Martial symbology is common in the Baha'i Writings, especially those of Shoghi Effendi, yet the Writings are expressly pacifistic. This article examines the apparent contradiction.
Notes Article adapted from chapter 9 of A Celestial Burning: A Selective Study of the Writings of Shoghi Effendi. Mirrored with permission from jack-mclean.com.
