    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This study explores religious transformation in Iran under Safavid rule. In addition to presenting the 1501 proclamation of Shia Islam as the official religion, it places the Safavids in context, examines religious change as such, and traces the multiple actors involved. It also considers impacts to religious institutions and the legitimation of rule, while reflecting on religious change in architecture and ritual performances.
