Chapter Summary

This bibliography contains a list of reference books, articles, and manuscripts relevant to the discussion on The Messiah of Shiraz. It includes earlier academic and quasi-academic materials that were not in the original bibliography, but which have a direct relationship to Shaykhism, Babism, or both. Given the surge in interest in Shi'ite Islam since 1979, it has not been remotely possible to include here more than a tiny portion of materials published on that subject in the intervening years. In this book, the author has chosen to concentrate on the ways in which the Shi'ite religious hierarchy changed during this period, giving rise to an extreme expression of values and beliefs inherent in its ennoblement of the clerical classes.

Keywords: Babism; Shaykhism; Shi'ite Islam; Shi'ite religious hierarchy
