Abstract: 

Haft Paykar, composed by Nizami Ganjavi, is a symbolic work with well integrated structure. It shows not only Nizami's power of storytelling but also his acquaintance with literary, cultural and mystical heritage of the past. Part of this heritage belongs to Gnostic mysticism, Manichaeism and hermetic philosophy. The aim of present article is to show the traces of these ideas in one of stories of Haft Paykar. After introducing Gnostic mysticism, it is indicated that how Muslims got acquainted with Gnostisim. Then, we look at the influence of Gnostic themes in the fifth story of Haft Paykar, the story of Princess of turquoise Dome or the story of Mahan. The Gnostic themes that are considered are as follows: duality of body and mind, the fall of Adam, captivity, oblivion and nostalgia, pessimism, knowledge, rebirth and salvation.
