Talisman in Qajar Era

Researching occult sciences has been ignored among historians. The present article has been specifically devoted to the second science of this complex, meaning “Limiya” or the science of talismans, and has tried to identify and introduce various types of talismans and the scope of Iranian’s belief in them during the Qajar era through a descriptive- analytical method and while introducing the activists of this field, this research has tried to find out why people resort to talismans. The results of the present research indicate that talismans had political, medical, and social applications in different fields in this era and nobles and common people were no different when it came to believing in talismans and being attracted by them. Gypsies, the Sufi community, and the Jewish people were the most important activists of this field during the Qajar era and they helped poor and desperate people face their problems.
