Personal pages by Baha'i Library contributors

  1. Jonah Winters. Communicative Interaction: Relating Habermasian Universalism to Baha'i Consultation (1996). The philosophy of Jurgen Habermas has been influential in formulating definitions of morality. These theories are similar to the unique use by Bahá'ís of "consultation" as a tool for creating civil societies and nonrepressive moral codes.
  2. Dianne Bradford. Comparison of Islamic Religious Modes with the Four Valleys of Bahá'u'lláh (1998). Comparison of stages in The Four Valleys with three approaches from Islam: Theologians, Muslim Philosophers, and Mystics.
  3. Contributors and assistants (2000). List of people who have donated significant amounts of time to building the Bahá'í Library (now outdated).
  4. Dianne Bradford. Course on Teaching Christians about the Bahá'í Faith (1999). Compilation of quotes from the Bahá'í Writings to aid in the teaching of the Faith to Christians, including answers to some questions posed by Christians.
  5. Jonah Winters. Dying for God: Martyrdom in the Shii and Babi Religions (1997). Religious and cultural meanings of martyrdom/witnessing, and their role in Shí'í and Bábí history.
  6. Dianne Bradford. Hidden Words: Training Course on (1998). Syllabus, materials, and quotes, covering themes of the Hidden Words.
  7. John Cornell: in memoriam (1998). Brief bio note written by Dr. Cornell in 1998 for posting at the Bahá'í Library Online, and a memoriam biography published by the BCCA in 2001.
  8. Jonah Winters. Martyrdom in Jihad (1997). Unlike Judeo-Christianity, Islam does not contain a core of martyrdom. Rather, it occurs in three disparate areas: war/jihad, asceticism, and Shi'ism. I examine the relationship between jihad and martyrdom and their classical and contemporary meanings.
  9. Jonah Winters. Origins of Shi'ism: A Consensus of Western Scholarship (1996). Shi'ism, representing about 10% of the umma, is often regarded as illegitimate by the majority Sunnis. Using Western historiographical methods, I examine three key events occuring during the life of Muhammad that are used to legitimize Shi'i origins.

Many Shi'is have charged the same, accusing Sunnis of removing the proofs of Ali's appointment as leader of the community from the Qur'an.
  25. Jonah Winters. Themes of 'The Erotic' in Sufi Mysticism (2017). Mystical writing is replete with symbolism of love and eros, and it can also be found in the mystical poetry of Bahá'u'lláh. This paper provides background for that topic by surveying the use of themes of the erotic in writings by seven Sufi mystics.
