About the Book

Adrianople: Land of Mystery is a brief history of the period of Baha’u’llah’s sojourn in Istanbul and Edirne between 1863 and 1868, a span in His Ministry considered to be the most prodigious in terms of revealed scripture and the most significant in the embryonic stage of the development of the Baha’i Faith. Maps and illustrations are provided to guide the reader to the principal sites associated with Baha’u’llah.
