Next Shahnameh-Khani Session: Sunday April 27th from 4:30 to 8:00 pm at Khaneh Iran

by Alireza Borojerdi

Salaam Doostan,

We had a great session on Sunday March 30th. We were able to finish the story of Zahhak. As usual, we enjoyed good comments from Dr. Monfared. In addition, we had the honor of having Dr. Faghih, Dr. Abedinejad, and Dr. Mahdavi with us who really added a lot of value and knowledge to our discussions. Thanks to all of them.

One interesting discussion was how much research has been done on every piece of Shahnameh. Dr. Faghih sent me an article about the research done on the name of Vakeel-e Zahhak which I have posted here for those who are interested.

Our next session will be on April 27th. We will start the story of Rostam va Sohrab. I had posted the handout before and I will post it here again for ease of use.

Thanks for participating and hope to see you all on Sunday April 27th.

Best Regards

Rostam va Sohrab
