Celebrating the Birthdate of the great Iranian epic poet: Ferdowsi.
Ferdowsi is the poet of the Iranian epic and the creator of the Shahnameh, the national poet of the Iranians.
Ferdowsi was a peasant and his life began at the same time as the Samanid rule, which, with the support of the Persian language, prepared a brilliant era for development of the Iranian language and thought.
Influenced by the rituals of ancient Iran such as Zarvanism, Mithraism and Zoroastrianism, as well as familiarity with ancient Iranian rituals and cultures due to its peasant origins, Ferdowsi succeeded in creating an eternal work called Shahnameh so that ancient Iranian cultures and rituals will never be forgotten.
May he rest in peace.
It should be noted that the Office of International and Scientific Cooperation of the University of Mazandaran (OISC) in order to expand international cooperation and introduce the greats of Iran to the world plans to provide courses related to Persian poetry and literature and Iranian studies in English soon;
