Collins, W., and J. Jasion. “Lev Tolstoi and the Bábí and Bahá’í Religions: A Bibliography”. The Journal of Bahá’í Studies, vol. 3, no. 3, Sept. 1991, pp. 1-9, doi:10.31581/jbs-3.3.1(1991).


The great spiritual crisis of Tolstoi’s life led him to a rejection of Christian dogma and the search for a pure faith. Late in life, this search led to his examination of the Bábí–Bahá’í religions. A bibliography of material on Tolstoi’s association with the religion has been needed for some time. This bibliography sets these sources in context for researchers.
