Abstract The introduction of the Bahá’í Teachings to the Gilbert and Ellice Islands in the 1950s and the consequent disturbance of the delicate church-state relationship operating at that time. Similar interactions may have occurred in other colonial environments.
Notes First presented at the 1st International Conference of the Chair for Bahá'í Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, December 2000 under the title "Bahá'í Faith, Christianity and local religions in the Pacific Islands: the case of Gilbert and Ellis Islands."
