Ali-Akbar Dehkhodā

Yale University Press

This chapter presents a column published on September 19, 1907, in the wake of the outrage sparked by the editorial in Sur-e Esrāfil's (SE) issue no. 12. Many clerics of Tehran were outraged by the editorial which was devoted to the controversial subject of human liberty. A group of seminarians attacked the offices of SE and called for the death of its writers. The column deals with the very real threat the writers faced in this period. It ends with Dakhow's conclusion that the high clerics did not necessarily deem the paper's ruminations on human liberty and freedom of thought antireligious. They only wanted these discussions limited to elite circles and not shared with ordinary people.
