The arrival of substantial numbers of Arab immigrants in Kashan in the early Islamic period played an important role in the city’s development and its continuation as a centre of Shīʻism. A strong educational tradition produced many talented Kashani officials who served in the Seljuk and later administrations.

In the Seljuk period Kashan gained a reputation for its production of luxury ceramics, including its lustre ware and pictorial mīnā’ī ware.

Roy Parviz Mottahedeh has a PhD in History (1969) from Harvard University and taught Islamic history at Princeton (1970-86) and at Harvard University (1986-2016). He has been the Gurney Research Professor at Harvard from 2016 to the present and is the author of several books, including “Der Mantel des Propheten”.
