Imam Khomeini encyclopedia unveiled at Hosseiniah Jamaran

Imam Khomeini Encyclopedia, which has been an outcome of years of scholarly efforts, recently unveiled at Hosseiniah Jamaran, where Imam used to deliver his historic speeches for public masses and foreign guests.

The Encyclopedia of Imam Khomeini, which has been published in ten volumes, was unveiled at a special ceremony at Jamaran Hosseinieh, a place for seasonal Islamic rituals adjacent to a building that housed Imam during the 1980s.

The ceremony on Wednesday evening was attended by Seyyed Hassan Khomeini, the grandson of Imam, Iranian First Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri, Ali Komsari, the deputy head of the institute and several other academic university and seminary figures. 

The cermony coincided with the anniversary of the holy prophet's assignment to divine mission which appears on the Islamic lunar claendar on 27th of Rajab. 

Imam Khomeini's encyclopedia, which has been written in 10 volumes by the Institute for the compiliation and Publication of Imam Khomeini's Works, is the result of the efforts of 260 scholars, researchers, writers, managers, and executors in various departments of science, executive management, writing, evaluation, rewriting, individual and group reviews, scientific and technical editing, typing services and images.

Imam Khomeini's encyclopedia, with more than 3,370,000 words in 6,800 pages, has tried to show different aspects of personal life, personality, and characteristics of Imam Khomeini's views and performance, as well as the surrounding issues and people associated with him.

There are over 860 main entries in the encyclopedia, which has been compiled and written by 260 experts and scholars in 6800 pages carrying over 3,370,000 words. The team of experts and scholars has worked under the supervision of Ayatollah Seyyed Zia Mortazavi.  

Hojjatoleslami Ali Kamsari, the deputy head of the Institute for the Compilation and Publication of Imam Khomeini’s Works, expressed his thanks to the team and said, “Several hundred scholars and writers have made endeavors for about ten years to accomplish this great encyclopedia.”

“Since culture and ideology have made the infrastructure of the Islamic Revolution, writing this has considerable scientific importance,” he added.  

Several top scholars, who have made great contributions to the encyclopedia, were honored by Jahangiri during the ceremony.

The encyclopedia also carries an album of 264 photos in the end, and one-third of the articles of the collection have been documented with relevant photographs.

Earlier in February, the Sacred Defense Research and Archives Center also released a book entitled “Book of Defense” that surveys the leadership role of Imam Khomeini during the 1980-1988 imposed war, which is known as the Sacred Defense in Iran.     

The Institute for the Compilation and Publication of Imam Khomeini’s Works had approved the book.

Speaking during the unveiling ceremony of the book, the director of the Socio-Cultural Studies Department of the center, Mohsen Qazi, said that the book contains Imam Khomeini’s discourses on the war derived from Sahifeye Nur, a series containing Imam Khomeini’s speeches on various topics.
