But the most explicit teaching of pluralism as religious truth comes from the region between east and west, namely Iran (Persia). It was here that the nineteenth-century prophet Bahá'u'lláh taught that the ultimate divine reality is in itself beyond the grasp of the human mind, but has nevertheless been imaged and responded to in different historically and culturally conditioned ways by the founders of the different faith-traditions. The Bahá'í religion which he founded continues to teach this message in many countries today.

[The only other indexed Bahá'í reference in the book is on p. 227, where Hick includes a sentence from Gleanings in a series of scriptural passages illustrating that "it is the basic teaching of *all* the world religions that we should behave towards others as we would wish others to behave towards us."]
