This page may be considered as a “summary” page, and lists the titles of every entry currently in this Glossary. The A-Z table above will navigate directly to the Glossary page for that letter. The A-Z table below will navigate to that letter in the summary of entries. Entries are in strict alphabetical order. Thus, for example, A’z... will be found before Ab.... Note also that the built-in find/search function of the browser will be only of limited use, due to the use of transliterated characters. Initial inspiration and data for these pages is the Glossary found in the volume Messages from the Universal House of Justice 1963-1986, beginning on page 729. Special thanks also to the author of Apocalypse Secrets for the kind permission to include the Glossary from that work. A number of entries have been brought up to date, and a few re-worded. Entries have been re-formatted. Entries from other Works and volumes have been included. Where relevant, entries have a link to the A-Z. New entries are being added on an ongoing basis.
