Abstract

The first part of this article (BSOAS, 61/3, 1998, 437-64) dealt with the revival and survival of the various branches of the Niʿmatullāhī order throughout the turbulent political upheavals of early nineteenth- and late twentieth-century Iran. Part II explores the revival of the Dhahabiyya, the second most important Sufi order in Persia, first begun by Quṭb al-Dīn Nayrīzī in the late eighteenth century. This is followed by a summary of the literary and social history of this ṭarīqa during the last two centuries, with some discussion of modern developments in the so-called Islamic Republic under its current master Dr Abū'l-Ḣamīd Ganjaviyān.
