Talk titled: "An Architectural Accounting Record from Shiraz, 1339"

Abstract: This paper draws on a neglected report of the construction of a mansion (bala-qasr) in Shiraz from the Risala-yi falakiyya, a mid-fourteenth-century accounting manual, which offers a rare glimpse of the building process in pre-modern Islam. Reading this document in a broader context, the paper hopes to shed new light on the social and architectural history of medieval Shiraz.
