Abstract Examination of four available manuscripts, dates of issue, variations, exclusions, verse numbering followed by a running commentary on its tone, message and implications for the future of the Bábí movement.
Notes This paper provides an analytical examination of a vital piece of Bábí literature most commonly referred to as the Will and Testament of the Bab. Whilst this document is an important Bábí work and has been available in several MS copies, it has not yet given the attention it deserves by generations of Bábí scholars. Indeed it may be a pre-requisite to study this tablet first prior to analysing the events of the Middle Bábí period.
