Abstract: 

The main topic of this essay is based the value and manifestation of religion on Iranian paintings in the Ilkhanid and Timurid periods. These two important schools of painting have been analyzed and compared.
In the Ilkhanid period, religious manuscripts such as “Asar-al-baghie” Biruni, Meraj Nameh Ahmad Mirza Album, Tarikhe Tabari, Jame-al- Tavarikh were generated. The reflection of Buddhism and Christianity along with Islam can be seen in the paintings of this period. Considering the fact that religious democracy existed, religious intolerance was to a large extent less significant compared to the Timurids.
However, In the Timurid era, religion and its consequences were practiced further. As well as historical manuscripts, religious pictorial stories existed in literary manuscripts due to the fact that rulers and ministers were all pious men and had great tendency towards religion and faith. Moreover, religious knowledge can be communicated to the viewer through the paintings. Among the merely religious manuscripts preserved from the Timurids are: The Miraj Nameh, and also The Khavaran Nameh which is a Shi’ah manuscript. In this epoch, foreign tendencies and also imitation from Chinese art and Christianity can be seen in a smaller degree; in addition, the development of the distinguished Iranian style can be witnessed.
It is essential to remind that the Holy Quran plays a significant role in choosing the related topics. Religious stories have been illustrated many times, however, other aspects are involved but further research is required in this matter.
