Stars Posters


Volunteers Shakeah Callucie and Trevor Layman at the Stars table.

The most detailed sources for Iranian astrology are the records produced by the court scholars from Ancient Iran. However, astrology appears in other contexts as well: religious works, which describe the movements of the stars and the divine, and political declarations, which use the power of the stars as a means to undergird the authority of the shah. The exhibit featured samples of all of these texts, and the volunteers offered to tell horoscopes based on an Iranian rather than Western star chart.

All posters are free to download and use.
