Roger Savory is a British-born Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto[1] who is an Iranologist and specialist on the Safavids. His numerous writings on Safavid political, military history, administration, bureaucracy, and dipolomacy-translated into several language have had a great impact in understanding this period.[2]

Biography[edit]

He was first introduced to Iranian studies as a young man between 1943 and 1947.[1] He started his formal education in Oxford under Professors Hamilton Gibb, Joseph Schacht and Richard Walzer. In 1950 he began lecturing on Persian at the school of SOAS. He completed his Ph.D. under Ann Lambton and Vladimir Minorsky at SOAS in 1958. He then joined the faculty of University of Toronto and was a major factor in establishing the University of Toronto as one of the forerunners of Middle Eastern and Iranian studies in North America.[2] Besides books and journal articles, he has alsocontributed to the Encyclopaedia of Islam,[3] Encyclopaedia Iranica,[4] and other Encyclopaedias. He also has dozens of book reviews published in peer-review journals.
