New addition completes bicentenary websites: a unique glimpse of unity in diversity
BAHA’I WORLD CENTRE — A new section, featuring images, videos, and music from commemorations of the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Bab, now completes the two bicentenary websites.
These websites stand as a permanent testament to how Baha’is and many of their compatriots throughout the world—from major urban centers to remote rural locations—commemorated the bicentennial anniversaries of the birth of Baha’u’llah and the Bab in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
An outpouring of love and esteem from an extraordinarily diverse cross-section of humanity characterized the worldwide commemorations of the births of these Twin Luminaries over two 72-hour periods.
Throughout that time, a feed of live updates on the websites offered simultaneously in over nine languages a rare panorama of the human family. The flow of posts provided glimpses of the countless artistic expressions and acts of service and devotion that were everywhere taking place. The websites also made available live broadcasts of devotional programs held in Baha’i Houses of Worship on every continent.
The final additions now made to the bicentenary websites include country pages illustrating the diversity of celebrations that these historic occasions inspired in over 150 countries and territories.
