AbstractThis paper intends to introduce the Kurdish genre of the Shāhnāma and, using manuscripts available to the author, undertakes a preliminary investigation into the religious world-views apparent in the genre. The following is an introductory note on the author’s more extensive research, the main conclusions of which are discussed and presented: specifically that the Kurdish Shāhnāma contains an original and independent textual tradition, in the Gurāni literary style, a style which developed separately from classical Persian literature, and which draws upon the Zagros-Kurdish landscape, as well as other regional and sectarian-religious influences.
