Baha'u'llah the King of Glory
Baha'u'llah The King of Glory
The life and times of Baha'u'llah are presented in their historical setting both in Iran and in the world at large. Much of its story is taken from the unpublished memoirs of His companions who themselves observed the events they describe. Details are given of Baha'u'llah's ancestry and family, His several journeys when banished from Iran, with the names of those who accompanied Him to Constantinople and into the citadel of Akka; the horrific martyrdom of Badi', His messenger to the Shah; the background of the marriage of Abdu'l-Baha, His eldest son; the machinations of the Azalis in Constantinople which brought Him anxiety and sorrow in His last years; and the closing months of His life at Bahji.
