‘Abdu’l-Bahá in France, 1911-1913

During 1911 and 1913, into the giddy frivolity of Paris life, boldly stepped the Persian spiritual philosopher and head of the Bahá’í world community, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá. As the 'Belle Epoque' with its flamboyant artistic life closed its curtains and the clouds of war gathered, he carried into that country a new vision and light that would draw people forward along the paths of morality and spiritual awareness. Men and women from all walks of life - artists, writers, politicians, journalists, philosophers, theologians, diplomats, teachers, musicians, lawyers, scientists, the poor and those who were among them - all were privileged to be inspired by this peerless ‘Abdu’l-Bahá in France.

This book is a thorough chronicle of those nine precious months spent in France, conveying ‘Abdu’l-Bahá's daily tasks and journeys, private conversations and public talks day by day through contemporary accounts. The people he encountered, newspaper articles and touching memories that...Show More
