This study attempts to sort out the partial and contradictory accounts of the last years and martyrdom of the prominent Twelver Shiite jurist Zayn al-Dīn al-'Āmilī (d. 965/1558), drawing on Shiite biographical works, Zayn al-Dīn's writings and the scholarly paraphernalia attached to them, Safavid chronicles, and a recently published travelogue that includes an eye-witness account of his execution in Istanbul. It argues in particular that the influential account of Zayn al-Dīn's arrest and execution included in al-Hurr al-'Āmilī's biographical work Amal al-āmil is a forgery from the late seventeenth century and should be discarded as evidence for Zayn al-Dīn's biography.
