TITLEChoice Wine: The Kitab-i Aqdas and the Development of Bahá'í Law
AUTHOR 1Anthony Lee
DATE_THIS1995-04
ABSTRACTThe Kitab-i Aqdas was not intended to establish a new law code (shari'a) similar to the one known to 19th century Muslim jurisprudence, but rather to discard that approach to law in favor of a more organic promulgation of ethical principles.
NOTES Presented at the Fifth Irfan Colloquium on Scriptural Studies, Wilmette, Illinois, 1995. Also posted at irfancolloquia.org/5/lee_wine.
