Poetry’s Place: Persian Architectural Inscriptions in the Bahmani Sultanate

8 Jan '18 6.30 - 8.30 pm
 
 

The lecture will discuss the architectural epigraphy of the Bahmani Sultanate in the Deccan and show how inscriptions reflected key social and cultural developments, such as changes in the relationship between temporal and spiritual authority and the concomitant development of new types of sacred spaces. There will be a particular focus on Persian inscriptions, the appearance of which in religious architecture accompanied the changing status of the Persian language as a vehicle for religious expression. These changes will be placed in the context of developments in the architectural and social history of the Delhi Sultanate, Iran and the Ottoman Empire.

This public lecture is part of a course Islamic Aesthetics: In Praise of Aj’aib, the Wondrous
