The Medieval Middle East

I have been interested in the Middle East, and especially Persia, for many years. Throughout those years I have done a lot of reading, a lot of thinking, and a bit of writing. Here are links to some of the results:

This is my library relating to things Middle-Eastern.

Items available in 9th century Persia.

Information about Persian Women's Clothing as seen in paintings from the 16th Century.

Some speculation about Sasanian women's clothing.

A list of male and female clothing terms used during the Abbasid caliphate.

Some thoughts about finding a 'good' edition of 1001 Nights.
