Abstract

This latest volume in the Idea of Iran Series traces that critical period in Iranian history when ancient traditions were transformed during the country's conversion and the establishment of Islam. Contributors discuss, from a variety of literary, artistic, religious and cultural perspectives, the innovative years around the end of the first milennium CE, when the political strength of the Abbasid Caliphate was on the wane and the eastern lands of the Islamic empire began to take on a fresh 'Persianate' character. Separate chapters engage with ideas of kingship, authority and identity, and their expression through the written word, architecture and he visual arts.
