Ethel Jenner Rosenberg

The Life and Times of England's Outstanding Baha'i Pioneer Worker

A fascinating biography of the 'second Bahá'í of the British Isles'.

Who was Ethel Jenner Rosenberg?

A Victorian spinster . . .

A painter of miniatures and portraits . . .

The first Englishwoman in her native country to accept Bahá'u'lláh as the Manifestation of God for this day . . .

Ethel Rosenberg heard of the Bahá'í movement in the final months of the nineteenth century and shortly afterwards became a Bahá'í. From that moment she dedicated herself to the promotion of the teachings of Bahá'u'lláh and to the service of 'Abdu'l-Bahá.

Using Ethel Rosenberg's own diaries and letters, minutes and notes from the meetings of the first Bahá'í institutions in Britain, and other original documents, Robert Weinberg explores the life of this fascinating woman, described by Shoghi Effendi as England's 'outstanding Bahá'í pioneer worker'.
