This Web Talk, the first of five Webinars for the Wilmette Institute Course Discovering the Báb’s Persian Bayán: The Most Holy Book of the Bábí Religion, will provide a general introduction and analysis of the first two “Books” or “Váḥids” of this monumental revelation from the pen of Him whom Bahá’u’lláh calls “The King of the Messengers”.

Shahrokh Monjazeb, BSc

Independent Scholar

I am an independent scholar of the Bahá’í history and sacred scripture. I began my scholarly endeavours in Bahá’í history around 1989, after I completed my undergraduate degree in Applied Physics and Electro-Acoustics with a minor in Religious Studies and Middle Eastern History. Two years later in 1991, I was invited to present at the annual conference of the Association for Bahá’í Studies North America on one of Bahá’u’lláh major works. Since then I have been involved with Bahá’í academic research as well as the work of translating into English the writings of the Central Figures of the Bahá’í Faith. I am a published author and lecturer whose writings and presentations focus on Bahá’í Sacred Text and their literary and historical significance in the context of socio-spiritual condition of human society. I have authored more than couple of dozen articles on Bahá’í history and Sacred Text as well as a monograph on Bahá’u’lláh entitled “Bahá’u’lláh: A Brief Survey of His Life & Works”.See Faculty Bio
