October 9-12, 1998

The English-language Irfan Colloquium and Seminar will be held October
9-12, 1998 at the Louhelen Baha'i School. This is the same weekend
that Louhelen will host the Persian-language Irfan Colloquium and
Seminar. The English-language programs were previously planned for
November 6-8, but were rescheduled to allow people to attend either
the English or Persian-language programs at once.

The English and Persian Irfan Colloquia for 1998 will focus on the
world religions in Baha'i perspective. The English and Persian Irfan
Seminars will focus on the revelation of Baha'u'llah during the
Istanbul and Adrianople periods (1863-68). They will examine a number
of important writings of Baha'u'llah such as Surih-yi- Ghusn, many of
the tablets addressed to the kings, the two tablets of Ahmad (Arabic
and Persian), the Mathnavi-yi Mu barak, the Tablet of the Celestial
Nightingale, and the Kitab-i-Badi (Baha'u'llah's response to the
questions raised by some Babis). In addition, the tablets of Naqus,
Sarraj, Tuqa, Ashraf, Salman, Nuqtih, Zibh, and Vidad will be
discussed in connection with Baha'i concepts of Divinity and
