The teachings of Bahá'u'lláh (The Glory of God),founder of the Bahá'í Faith in Persia in the early 19th century, are vast in scope, exploring such things as the nature and purpose of revelation, the inherent nobility of the human being, the cultivation of spiritual qualities, and the interaction of humanity with the natural world.

There is no priesthood, but Bahá'í does have an administrative order. We meet in our homes, at least every 19 days according to the Bahá'í calendar.
