The second most "global" religion

The Bahá'ís have established "significant" communities in more countries and territories than any other independent religion with the exception of Christianity.

According to the 1992 Encyclopaedia Britannica Book of the Year, the Bahá'í Faith is established in 205 sovereign countries and dependent territories (see graph.)

This point was first made in 1982, in the World Christian Encyclopedia. That volume reported on the work of some 500 scholars, demographers and statisticians who conducted the first comprehensive survey of religious believers worldwide.
