ČISTĀ Studies in the History, Cultures and Religions of the Iranian Worldis concerned with history as well as religious and cultural aspects of the Iranian and the Persianate world, with a special emphasis on 'niche subjects' that seldom gain the interest of the scholars of Iranian Studies. The underlying presupposition is that the study of the Iranian world, from antiquity to the pre-modern era needs to be located within cultural and social analysis, situating historical and religious traditions within the broader cultural and geopolitical dynamics within which those traditions are located.Giventhefocus on thesocial, religiousandculturalcontext, thisserieencouragesspecificallycross-disciplinaryresearcheswith a broaderapplication of theoreticalandmethodologicaltoolstothestudythe Iranian world.
