FACULTY: Shahrokh Monjazeb, Christopher Buck
The year 2016 marks the 150th anniversary of the revelation of Baha’u’llah’s seminal proclamatory work, the Suriy-i-Muluk, which set the stage for future summons by Him to all the major political leaders of the nineteenth century. Baha’u’llah wrote this lengthy and monumental epistle during His banishment to the remote Turkish city of Edirne and while He was engulfed in severe attacks from within the Babi community contesting His leadership and undermining His divine mission. In this course we will examine closely relevant topics, such as those addressed in the text of the tablet; the impact of this very challenging summons on the political landscape of Europe and the Middle East; and how its spiritual repercussions are still being felt today in the global political arena. Our online study will include a number of webinars.
You may join our online learning community either as an individual or as part of a study group (3 to 20 people). In either case, you can do all your work at home at any time of the day or night. We assign mentors to individuals and to groups to advise, encourage, assist, and answer questions. Groups are expected to meet every week or two for group discussions. Web-based forums connect all learners--individuals and members of a group--to the insights and perspectives of fellow students from all over the world.
To form a group, ask some friends whether they'd like to take the course with you. If at least one other agrees, go into the registration system, establish a group, and pay for it. Then email the confirmation number and its web link to the others, so they can click through and add themselves to the group. One person (or a Spiritual Assembly) pays for the group; the group members reimburse the payee based on whatever arrangement the group devises.
Note: All our courses are "asynchronous," which means there is no work that has to be done at a particular time. You can do everything at any time. For more information, go to http://wilmetteinstitute.org/ourcourses/frequently-asked-questions/.
Discounts are available for early registration and for senior citizens (age 65+), students, and pioneers. If you need a financial aid discount, write us at email@example.com. Plenty are available. Registration is limited to 40 people, so sign up today.
