Lost Volumes of "Beihaqi History" Rewritten

 

 

 

24 September 2005

 

Renowned Iranian writer and historian Abolfazl son of Hossein Beihaqi who lived during the reign of Sultan Masoud Ghaznavi (11th century AD), compiled a 30-volume chronology of events known as ’Beihaqi History’ of which only five volumes can be accounted for.


According to CHN, Sirous Mahdavi, a researcher, writer and director of the periodical ’Abakhtar’ is currently compiling a three-volume ’Dictionary of Beihaqi History’s Dignitaries’ featuring the distinguished figures referred to in the masterpiece.


Mahdavi has completed two volumes of the book, which will be published by Mashhad’s Ferdowsi University’s Publishing House, and is working on the third volume.


To restore the information presumably contained in the missing volumes of ’Beihaqi History’, the researcher conducted extensive studies of history books which were compiled during the same era as the masterpiece.


According to Mahdavi, ’Fereshteh History’, ’Mohammad Qasem Hendoushah’, ’Montakhab ol-Tavarikh’ and ’Zein ol-Akhbar’ are among the books which have quoted materials from ’Beihaqi History’.


Mahdavi further ventured to gain access to information about dignitaries by referring to history books written by foreign and domestic authors including those by Ali Akbar Fayyaz, Saeed Nafisi, Khalil Khatib-Rahbar, Manouchehr Daneshpajouh, Mohammad Jafar Yahaqqi and Ali Akbar Dehkhoda.
