"Instituto Bahai"

A monotheistic religion that believes in the rational soul, the Unity of God, the Unity of humankind, and full equality for men and women. The Bahá'í Faith originated in Persia in the mid-nineteenth century and follows the concept of He whom God shall make manifest, as written by their predecessor and inspiration Siyyid 'Alí-Muhammad of Shiraz. Seen as an apostasy to Islam, the Bahá'í's have been persecuted, tortured and even executed. In 1953 their leader, Shoghi Effendi, formulated his Ten Year Crusade with the intention of spreading the faith across the world.
