After revealing the Kitáb-i-Aqdas in 1873-74, Bahá'u'lláh penned a series of tablets that include the Lawh-i-Aqdas, the Book of the Covenant, and the Tablet of Carmel. The tablets revealed after the Kitab-i-Aqdas elaborate on Bahá'u'lláh’s laws, further explore the nature of the mystical life, describe basic theological teachings, and expound the principles necessary for transforming human society. The bulk of these weighty epistles were published in 1978 in Tablets of Bahá'u'lláh Revealed after the Kitab-i-Aqdas. In this course we will read and study these tablets and discuss their relationship to other works by Bahá'u'lláh and `Abdu'l-Bahá. All readings will be provided via the web; no books need to be purchased.
