A Work Of History Richly Informed By The Anthropology Of Religion And Art, The Millennial Sovereign Traces How Royal Dynastic Cults And Shrine-centered Sufism Came Together In The Imperial Cultures Of Timurid Central Asia, Safavid Iran, And Mughal India. By Juxtaposing Imperial Chronicles, Paintings, And Architecture With Theories Of Sainthood, Apocalyptic Treatises, And Manuals On Astrology And Magic, Moin Uncovers A Pattern Of Islamic Politics Shaped By Sufi And Millennial Motifs From The End Of The Sixteenth Century To The Turn Of The First Islamic Millennium. He Also Shows How Alchemical Symbols And Astrological Rituals Enveloped The Body Of The Monarch, Casting Him As Both Spiritual Guide And Material Lord. These Findings Offer A Striking New Perspective On The History Of Islam And The Religious And Political Developments Linking South Asia And Iran In Early-modern Times.
