    "Sufis, Shi‘ites and Shahs: The Great Shrines of Iran 1500-1650" - Dr. Sheila Canby, Curator of Islamic Collections at the British Museum, will discuss the Ardabil Shrine, the dynastic heart of the Safavid Dynasty, and two other major shrines, the Shrine of Imam Riza in Mashhad and the Shrine of Fatimeh Ma`sumeh in Qum. The gifts and renovations of the Safavid shahs to the shrines bear witness to the important role of these shrines in establishing Shiism as the state religion of Iran and the Safavid shahs as its protectors. This lecture is presented in partnership with His Highness Prince Aga Khan Shia Imami Ismaili Council for Northern Texas.
