Announces the First International Conference on:

The Bábí and Bahá'í Religions In the
Context of Modern Religious Movements

At Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel
24-27 December 2000


Scope of Subjects

The Bábí and the Bahá'í religions reflect unique
developments in the religious life of 19th Century Shiite Islam in
General, and of Iran in particular. Indeed, the mid-19th Century
appearance of the Báb in Iran coincided with highly significant
developments in the worlds of Judaism, Christianity and Sunni Islam. The aim of
this Conference is to examine the development of the Bábí and
Bahá'í religions within the broader context of developments which
took place in the other major monotheistic religions - beginning in the
19th Century and extending to the present day.
