What We Offer

Archiving for Historical Preservation

Preserving Baha'i Related Materials

The Baha'i Faith is in a unique position in its religious history because it possesses numerous original writings of its central figures, the Bab, Baha'u'llah, and Abdu’l-Baha. Shoghi Effendi who held position of Guardian in the faith translated many of the original Tablets written in the Persian and Arabic languages into English. This made them accessible to western readers.

These original writings are a source of guidance and inspiration to over five million Baha'is around the world. They are also critical to the spiritual and administrative development of the worldwide Baha'i community.

Based on the Will and Testament of Abdu’l-Baha, the Guardian placed into effect a series of teaching plans. Through his inspiration and guidance an ever-increasing cadre of dedicated members from the east and west spread the teachings of the faith around the globe. Exactly how this was done, those involved and the various means employed still remains largely undocumented, and for a variety of reasons too numerous to mention.

Many might consider what they have in their possession to be of little value beyond their own personal memories. However when placed in proper context the preservation of materials “will ensure their availability in the future, and allow historians and scholars to delve into past, present and future” of its historical developments. No doubt, the efforts of astute researchers and historians who will grapple mightily to present a definitive and actuate history of the Baha’i Faith may find those materials now in your possession to have profound importance.

The sections provided below offers guidance on what you can do to help ensure that Baha'i related materials are well prepared for survivability over extended time-horizons. We encourage and support your efforts.
