About: A quarter century has passed since the publication of the authorized translation of Bahá’u’lláh’s Kitáb-i-Aqdas from Arabic to English. In that time, English language scholarship on the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, especially its legal content, has grown. This essay reviews the emerging body of scholarship surrounding the Kitáb-i-Aqdas and Bahá’í law, identifies core themes and approaches, and suggests directions which future study of this topic might encompass.
