Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms that occur in this book Politics, Poetry, and Sufism in Medieval Iran. The book deals with the allegorical romance Salāmān va Absāl, composed by the medieval Persian poet-mystic ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Jāmī, which has been somewhat maligned by modern scholarship that has tended to regard it simply as a trite and even grotesque tale about the amorous affair between a prince and his wet-nurse.

Keywords: ʿAbd al-Raḥmān Jāmī; medieval Iran; Sufism
