Film: ESR 8 Mahdieh Tavakol

Updated: Nov 15

Good morning! We are happy to start this week with the great film of Mahdieh Tavakol.



Mahdiehs research is focused on the library of Baha al-Din Muhammad al-Amili (1547-1621 CE), the great Jabal Amili scholar in Safavid Persia. Her video is a brief overview of her work and the way she is trying to reconstruct this historical library whose manuscripts are now scattered around the globe.


Exciting film and research, Mahdieh!
