A sociological study, Bahá'í Lore explores the content and function of unofficial lore in a religious community. Drawing on nearly two thousand oral and written communications received from more than 400 informants and recorded over a 15-year period, David Piff examines hearsays, rumours, anecdotes, interpretations and speculations shared among members of the Bahá'í religion.

Piff's annotated appendix of the lore he has compiled includes hearsays concerning:

  • Bahá'í practices
  • the catastrophe
  • the future
  • the nations of the world
  • celebrities who are said to be associated with the religion.
