Life of the Bab course was a Lifeline for an Isolated Believer
The Life of the Báb (2019)
Faculty: Peter Smith, Moojan Momen
Dorinda Bogartus described the impact the course on The Life of the Báb had on her in these words:
The class on the life of the Báb was so great. It helped me have a better understanding of the connection between the Báb’s writings and those of Bahá’u’lláh, and how interrelated they are. I learned:
- how much the teachings of Muhammad influenced both the Báb and Bahá’u’lláh,
- the cultural differences between then and now,
- how much of a constant threat there was on the Báb’s life, and
- how He was trying to reform Islam to improve the lives of the people.
These courses are so important to me as an isolated believer. I can’t thank you and all the staff enough for your efforts.
