About the Colloquia
The Irfán Colloquia started in 1993 and have continued to be held annually in North America and Europe. The aim and purpose of the Irfán activities are to foster systematic studies of the scriptures of the world's religions from the Baha'i perspective and to promote scholarly studies in the sacred writings, verities, and fundamental principles of the belief system of the Baha'i Faith. Some of the sessions of the conference will be given over to the theme of the conference, "Mysticism and the Baha'i Faith."
