Ancient Persia : history and treasures of an ancient civilization by Anna Vanzan( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book investigates the pre-Islamic Iranian culture that developed between the 5th millennium BC and the 7th century AD in the immense territory extending from the Eastern Mediterranean to Central Asia. This chronological overview illustrates the key aspects of this civilization, from the prehistoric era to its development and the establishment of its empires. It examines the Achaemenids, who maintained the empire created by the Babylonians and Assyrians, the Seleucids, who revived the Achaemenid political and cultural cosmopolitanism destroyed by Alexander the Great, and the Parthians and Sassanids, who transformed the empire into the greatest crossroads of religion, civilization, language and trade between East and West. This historical journey is supplemented by detailed considerations of the arts, religions, traditions and customs of the ancient populations of the Iranian plateau who, despite the constant pressure they faced, managed to maintain a cultural unity that has endured into modern times. The book, which is based on the latest scientific research, is written for the general public in a narrative that combines a clear style with scientific accuracy. The historical tableau that emerges conveys the complexity of a world that fascinated all the cultures that came into contact with it, from those in the Far East to the European populations. At the same time, it offers significant insight that will help readers understand what is happening today in a cultural and geographical area that, unfortunately, the West continues to observe with hesitant admiration."--Publisher's description

Donne e giardino nel mondo islamico by Anna Vanzan( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in Italian and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fin dai suoi albori, la civiltà musulmana si preoccupa di “islamizzare” ogni aspetto della vita pubblica e privata, compresi gli spazi. L’etica islamica prevede che pubblico e privato siano rigidamente separati, e tale concezione si riflette immediatamente sulla casa d’abitazione, difesa da mura che celino gli abitanti da sguardi esterni, proteggendo la privacy familiare. La vita dei residenti è rivolta all’interno, dove, dopo l’ingresso principale, si apre un cortile attorno al quale si svolgono le attività familiari. Il cortile-giardino, s’arricchisce di alberi, piante, fontanelle o addirittura vasche (tipiche quelle in Iran e nel sub continente indiano), recipienti in metallo o marmo, gabbie per gli uccellini, e spesso si avvale della bellezza dei delicati intarsi nel legno che contorna le finestre degli ambienti affacciantisi sul cortile stesso o aggettantisi sulla strada esterna. E così che, al posto delle finestre comunemente intese, nascono vere e proprie costruzioni articolate (mashrabiya), delicatamente intagliate nel legno, che consentono alle donne di vedere fuori senza essere viste dagli estranei. Un luogo dove passeggiare con le proprie dame o dove le stesse potevano trascorrere il proprio tempo in piena libertà. Il giardino, infatti, è hortus conclusus e, come tale, spazio quanto mai atto a ospitare la presenza femminile che nelle società islamiche deve rimanere, preferibilmente, celata all’interno di ginecei (harem) di cui il giardino è la naturale estensione. Ecco che il binomio donne-giardino si rafforza e occupa spazi sociali, letterari, artistici e antropologici."--

Studies on the "Khaterat" by Taj as-Saltane, a Qajar princess by Anna Vanzan( )

3 editions published between 1989 and 1990 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis explores the Khaterat (Memoirs) written by Taj as-Saltane (1884-?), a Qajar princess who was a daughter of Naser ad-Di n Shah (1848-1896) and a sister of Mozaffar ad-Di n Shah (1896-1906). These Memoirs, which were probably written in the 1920's, belong to a tradition which began to develop in Iran during the 19th and 20th centuries: members of the Qajar court compiled their travelogues and diaries, wrote autobiographies and recorded their remembrances in their final years. Many scholars of the Qajar period use these works as an essential source of data
