The age of magnificence in Persia came at the end of the sixteenth and the beginning of the seventeenth century with Shah Abbas the Great. His desire was to build the most beautiful city in the East-Isfahan; a city whose mosques, bridges, and gardens would dazzle even the visiting emissaries of the High Renaissance in Europe.
Robert Erskine shows how even today the order and elegance of Isfahan fulfil the dream of Shah Abbas, the Great Sophy.
