Ioannesyan Y. The St. Petersburg 19th c. Collection of Materials on the Babi and Baha’i Faiths: Primary and other Sources // Written Monuments of the Orient, 2. Moscow: Vostochnaya literatura, 2015. P. 85-107.


The article is concerned with one of the richest collections of materials related to the Babi and Baha’i faiths, the St. Petersburg collection. The large amount of primary sources flowing into pre-revolutionary Russia was distributed between three scholarly and learning centers: the Asiatic Museum, presently the Institute of Oriental Manuscripts, Russian Academy of Sciences (the bulk of the sources), the St. Petersburg State University and the Russian National Library. These materials either in Persian or Arabic take the form of manuscripts and lithographs. The article describes these materials and gives briefly the history of studies of these sources.
