Studies in Modern Religions and Religious Movements and the Babi-Baha'I Faiths

The studies, introduced by the editor s analysis of the underlying common source of this religious activity, lead the reader into a rich world of messianism, millenniarism and eschatological thought fueling the intense modern developments in the three major monotheistic religions.
