Welcome!

The Corinne True Center for Bahá’í History was established by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of the United States in January 2024. Its purpose is to foster the study of Bahá’í history, Bahá’í sacred texts, Bahá’í philosophical and theological concepts, and world religions from a Bahá’í and comparative perspective.

It will accomplish this through online noncredit courses, web presentations and interviews, online seminars, online conferences, in-person conferences, and publication of some of the resulting research. It will seek to support these subjects at three levels in order to provide comprehensive support to Bahá’í culture and Bahá’í scholarship: at an introductory level, to inform rank and file believers and their friends and encourage them to do basic scholarship; the advanced level, for Bahá’ís and their friends wishing to go into greater depth of study and research; and the graduate and postgraduate levels, via seminars and academic-level conferences.
