Abstract Emerging out of the matrix of an Islamic intellectual ethos, the Bahá'í Faith is informed by many of the central themes of Neoplatonic thought; a discussion of Plotinian and Islamic Neoplatonism; the dominant Neoplatonic features in the Bahá'í system.
Notes Presented at the Texas Regional Bahá'í Studies Conference in Austin in November 1995.

There are a few errors in footnoting, probably the result of the typist accidentally leaving them out. I have inserted those numbers, possibly incorrectly, where it seemed that there should be a footnote (judging by placement of previous notes and the content of particular sentences, and my own experiences with Plato).
