Augustinians' acts in Safavid era of Iran

Although the history of Catholic Christianity propagation in Islamic era of Iran returns to the Ilkhanid period, it was at first in the Safavid era when organized form of Catholic missions began with the actions of a sect of Christian mystics attributed to St. Augustine. Starting of these efforts had not been an outcome of peaceful endeavours, but rather the upshot of Portugueses' military rushes to the Persian Gulf and their occupation of Hormuz Island. The purpose of this research is to answer that what the consequences of the Augustinians' actions during the Safavid era have been. It has been tried to examine the subject based on original and genuine sources and descriptive and analytical method. The findings of the study show that Augustinians, in the face of Iranians' strong solidarity in their religious beliefs, practically failed to promote Christianity and were forced to leave Iran forever.
