The Quickening: Unknown Poetry of Tahirih

The Quickening is a newly translated collection of stirring poems by the renowned nineteenth-century poetess Tahirih that deals with a subject that has challenged religious scholars throughout the ages.

This subject is the concept of a last judgment or end of time. Tahirih's beautifully written poems show that the Bahá’í view of the "Resurrection" or the "Quickening," as the term is translated here, stands in bold contrast to many traditional views.
