The Revival of Twelver Shi’i Tafsīr in Early Modern and Modern Times: Three Case Studies | The Institute of Ismaili Studies
According to the doctrine of early Imami Shi’ism, the authority to interpret the of the Qur’an belongs exclusively to ʿAlī and his descendants, the Imams. Consequently, most Tafsīrs written in Twelver Imami circles after the Occultation of the twelfth Imam are essentially comprised of traditions attributed to the Imams. Yet, an impressive revival of the Imami Tafsīr can be observed in the Ilkhanid period, and even more so during the Safavid era in Iran, in the context of interfacing between Imami Shi’ism, Sufism and philosophy.

Welcome! You are invited to join a webinar: Dr Sheila Canby – ‘Indians in Safavid Iran: the pictorial evidence’. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the webinar.
Indians appear in Persian painting long before the Safavid period (1501-1722), either as characters in illustrations of the Shahnameh of Ferdowsi or Khamsa of Nizami or as unidentified labourers, elephant jockeys and the like. Over the course of the 16th and 17th centuries the Persian depiction of Indians expanded to include portraits and works in the Indian style.
