Worldview and the Law of the Persian Bayan – A Series of 4 Talks by Dr. Nader Saiedi

In this series of four talks by Dr. Nader Saiedi called ‘Worldview and the Law of the Persian Bayan’, Dr. Saiedi offers a holistic, yet concise look at the Persian Bayan, the Mother Book of the Bab’s Dispensation. These talks explore the worldview offered in the Persian Bayan by looking at the work in its totality, as well as examining its laws, commandments and ordinances.

These four talks were given at the Santa Monica Baha’i Center (USA) in September of 2019, and a very special thanks to Dr. Nader Saiedi and the Local Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Santa Monica, California, for allowing Baha’i Blog to publish these talks.

Professor Nader Saiedi is well known for his books ‘Logos and Civilization’ and ‘Gate of the Heart’. Born in Tehran, Iran, he holds a Master’s degree in economics from Pahlavi University in Shiraz and a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of Wisconsin. For over 25 years he was a professor of sociology at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. In 2013, he became the Taslimi Foundation Professor of Baha’i Studies in the department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures at UCLA.
