IBNA– CEO of Iran’s Book House Institute Majid Gholami Jalisseh visited the Islamic and Iranian manuscripts at Pergamonmuseum in Berlin, one of the distinguished museums of the world.
According to IBNA correspondent, in his report on the Pergamonmuseum in Berlin, Jalisseh writes:
“Pergamum is located in the island of Berlin’s museums that consists of a collection of diverse museums. My goal was, of course, mostly focused on the section of the Museum of Islamic Art of Pergamon which I had heard of. A bookstore was located right at the entrance of the museum which was a very busy place, and interestingly enough, a significant volume of books on Iran and Iranian civilization was offered there for sale. Many of these books were related to the Pergamon research on museum objects.
One of the professional features of this museum was an audio tour guide that greatly enhanced your enjoyment of the outing, and anywhere you needed information, you could have it in a useful way.
On the ground floor of this museum, the section of Assyrian and Babylonian civilizations was magnificent and indescribable, as its perfect and purposeful arrangement, besides the splendor of the Babylonian and Assyrian civilizations, was astonishing.
The second floor was home to the Department of Islamic Arts that stood at the entrance to the Aleppo reception room, which was a wooden room decorated in fine Iranian style. It belonged to the tomb of a merchant from Aleppo. Interestingly, the lyrics written on the door of the room were in Nastaliq script and in Arabic.
A collection of exquisite sacred books in Arabic, which were mostly illustrated, like ‘Eskandar-Nameh’, ‘Qesas al Anbia’, `Ajayeb al Makhlouqat’, ‘Musa Nameh’ in Hebrew, and ‘Belqeis and Solomon’, were displayed at the entrance corridor too.”
