Obituary

Professor Edmond Bosworth (1928 - 2015) 

The Iran Heritage Foundation notes with deep regret the death of Professor Edmund Bosworth on 28th February 2015 at the age of 86. He was a brilliant scholar who made a great contribution to the history of Iran in the Islamic period. He was a Professor at Manchester University 1967-1990, and contributed some 100 articles to Encyclopaedia Iranica. 

He was co-editor of Iran, the journal of the British Institute of Persian Studies for more than 40 years from 1968 onwards, and he wrote many books and articles on Iranian and Arabic history in the Islamic period. Recent books include translations of some of the works of the 9th-10th century Iranian historian Tabari. Amongst the many honours that came his way he was elected a Fellow of the British Academy in 1992 and he was awarded the Dr Mahmud Afshar Foundation Prize for contributions to Iranian Studies in 2001.
