Composed in the tenth century by the poet Firdowsi, the Shah nameh or Book of Kings is Iran central literary work, a historical epic peopled with monarchs, some of inspiring goodness, others of unmatched wickedness, handsome paladins, beautiful maidens, malevolent witches, and treacherous demons. The particular manuscript of the Shah nameh introduced here by Stuart Cary Welch, Curator of Indian and Islamic Painting at the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, is the most sumptuous one ever produced.
