CONTENT
About: Memorials of the Faithful is a book consisting of stories told by ‘Abdu’l-Bahá to gatherings of Bahá’ís in Haifa during World War I. This essay aims to explore some of the insights contained within it. The focus is on two readily apparent aspects of the text. First is the diversity of personalities described, while the other is the sheer ordinariness of many of those remembered lives. The discussion explores how these two aspects of the text highlight some of the broader questions raised by the Bahá’í Faith.
