The Art and Architecture of Twelver Shi'ism

Iraq, Iran and the Indian Sub-Continent

James W Allan

Twelver Shi’ism, so-called for the belief that the right of succession as leader of the Muslim community was transmitted in a hereditary line of twelve successive imams, is the dominant faith in southern Iraq and Iran, and has had a significant presence in India, notably in Lucknow and Bijapur. This well-illustrated volume introduces the great shrines of the faith, its impact on craft industries and the annual processions when metal standards are paraded.
