Chapter Summary

This index section of this book The Messiah of Shiraz: Studies in Early and Middle Babism presents a list of terms, concepts and names that occur in the book, along with their respective page numbers. The entries are arranged in alphabetical order. The book seeks to explore a neglected but important development in the history of Iranian Shiism in the period immediately preceding the beginning of full-scale Western economic and political penetration. Earlier, much attention was focused on Babism and Baha'ism, but these movements are less reformist than heterodox in nature and, in the end, seek to move beyond an Islamic frame of reference altogether.

Keywords: Babism; Baha'ism; Iranian Shiism; Islam
