The Calling tells the dramatic story of Tahirih of Qazvin, a female mystic and poet, who stood at the forefront of the most powerful religious awakening to emerge in the near East during the 19th century. In this lively and carefully researched account, her little-known story is presented in the context of the Shi’a Muslim Persian world in which she moved. The reader of today can ‘hear’ her voice in her poems translated by scholars Amin Banani, and Jascha Kessler.

We have intertwined her life with stories of the lives of great American female figures who fueled religious awakenings and social reform movements and brought American women into the ‘public sphere’ for the first time such as Mary Baker Eddy, Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and many others. The lives of these inspired women will greatly interest those who seek faith and want social change.

The story of Tahirih’s life has been carefully reconstructed from a variety of sources which differ in their details; for more information on sources, please see the endnotes in the printed version of The Calling.
