Rossi: Diglossia in Persian; ‘Ali Ashraf Sadeghi: Rare forms of personal endings in some Classical Persian texts; Nicholas and Ursula Sims-Williams: Rustam and his zīn-i palang).
A number of further essays discuss Persian literature (Clifford Edmund Bosworth: The poet ‘Asjadī and early Ghaznavid history; Paul Luft: Authenticity and identity of Qājār poetry on stone and paper; Christine van Ruymbeke: Sir William Jones and the Anwār-i Suhaylī), historiography (Bert G. Fragner: Orientalismus in Abenteuererzahlungen aus der fruhen Sowjetunion; Anna Krasnowolska: The Sarmatian myth and Poland’s nineteenth-century Orientalism; Katalin Torma: Georgius Gentius and the early reception of the Gulistān in Hungary; Sibylla Wentker: A visit of the Shah. Vienna and the false Rūznāma of Nāṣir al-Dīn Shah); religion (Antonio Panaino: Jesus’ trimorphisms and tetramorphisms in the meeting with the Magi), science (Ziva Vesel: Les figures astrologiques dans les traites persans); and art (Iván Szántó: Bahāʼ al-Dīn al-‘Āmilī and the visual arts).
