The ‘Irfán Colloquium has announced its sessions for 2015.

‘Irfán is a forum on studies related to the fundamental principles of Bahá’í beliefs, the Writings of the Founders of the Bahá’í Faith, the interface between the Bahá’í Faith and current intellectual and religious trends, and the main challenges in human society.

Through the year, sessions are to be held in English and Persian at Bosch and Louhelen Bahá’í Schools and in Acuto, Italy, as well as in German in Tambach, Germany.

In an informal and collegial atmosphere, colloquium participation provides a unique opportunity for meeting and associating with those interested in systematic Bahá’í studies. There will also be intervals of musical performances. Participants receive a free set of current ‘Irfán publications.

More details are available on the Web (www.irfancolloquium.org) or through email (info@irfancolloquium.org).
