Prince Baysunghur, Before and After: Timurid Manuscripts in Context
This two-day international symposium, to be held in early November 2021, celebrates the 600-year anniversary of the first manuscript produced in the Timurid prince’s Herati library-atelier. It is also the inaugural symposium of the Persian Manuscript Association, and sponsored by the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton. This symposium brings together scholars and international experts in a number of disciplines to explore the connoisseurship and patronage undertaken by the prince, the aesthetic of his atelier’s output, their antecedents in the Jalayirid period, and the production of literary editions in his library.
