Leo Tolstoy and the Bahá'í Faith
by Luigi Stendardo
Soft Cover
ISBN: 978-0-85398-215-5
Description:
‘Very profound. I know of no other so profound.’

This was the final conclusion about the Bahá’í Faith of the great nineteenth-century writer, Leo Tolstoy, a few months before his death in 1910.

Tolstoy first heard of the Bahá’í teachings in 1894 at a time when the movement was known hardly at all in the West, and its leader was a prisoner in an obscure outpost of the Turkish Empire. This book traces the developments and fluctuations in Tolstoy’s attitude as more information was made available to him. It is based on the author’s correspondence and diaries, as well as the memoirs of those close to him and Bahá’ís who came into contact with him. Most of the material is here made available for the first time in English, translated from Russian, Persian and French, and includes a hitherto unpublished Tablet of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá.
