TITLEThe Major Opus: A Study of the German Templers Movement and Its Relationship with the Bahá'í Faith
AUTHOR 1Fuad Izadinia
ABSTRACTThe story of the journey of two parallel movements to the Holy Land in 1868: the Bahá'ís from Iran and the Templars from Germany. Includes early descriptions of Haifa from both sources, comparative translations of the Tablet to G. Hardegg, and more.
NOTES See also A Tablet of Bahá'u'lláh to the Templer Leader Georg David Hardegg (S. Lambden and K. Ekbal, 2003).

This paper is noteworthy because it contains the only English translations of Vahid Rafati’s Persian paper about Abdu’l-Baha’s visits to Haifa ("Jamal-i-Qadam dar Haifa" ["Bahá’u’lláh in Haifa"], Pajuheshnameh vol. 3, Autumn 1997; see pp. 48 and 66-72, below).
