Twin Institutions Unique To This Order.

Put into the context of classical liberalism with an appreciation of Aristotelean philosophy Shoghi Effendi captures the essence of these twin institutions: “The hereditary authority which the Guardian is called upon to exercise, the vital and essential functions which the Universal House of Justice discharges, the specific provisions requiring its democratic election by the representatives of the faithful -- these combine to demonstrate the truth that this divinely revealed Order, which can never be identified with any of the standard types of government referred to by Aristotle in his works, embodies and blends with the spiritual verities on which it is based the beneficent elements which are to be found in each one of them.” [136]
