This is the second of two volumes which consider in detail the art and architecture of Islam, from Spain to India, from the 7th century to the present day. This volume reflects Hillenbrand's principal interest: the architecture of Iran during the Seljuq period (11th to 12th centuries). Papers include discussions of mosques, mausolea, dome chambers, domestic architecture and tilework amongst many other subjects. The first volume, also available, encompasses a broad overview of the art and architecture of the Islamic world.
