Fifteenth-century Iran and Central Asia was a place of changing political, religious, and social norms. Much scholarship has been focused on the top-down production of these norms through the patronage of architecture and elite scholarship. Through a study of various hagiographical texts and of shrine spaces, this talk will instead demonstrate how both elite and popular segments of society engaged in a discursive construction of the sacred.

Rubina Salikuddin is a CFD Postdoctoral Fellow in the Program in Middle Eastern Studies.
