Christ And Christianity Amongst The Iranians Volume 3

H.B. Dehqani-Tafti

This last volume in the trilogy, of 578 pages, deals with the great change in Persian literature and art which occured in the 19th and 20th centuries, partly as a result of Iran’s contact with the West. In this new era of literature, Christian symbols were no longer politically identified with Western imperialism.

This book also contains samples of writings and translations about Christianity by famous Persian authors. It mentions some important Christian books written in or translated into Persian, and includes works of Persian Christians in prose and poetry, together with examples of sculptures, miniatures, designs, buildings and musical compositions. This book has a comprehensive Bibliography covering all the books and articles in Persian and in other languages mentioned in all the three volumes of the trilogy. It also has an index of names of persons, places and languages.
