Before and after

"From the beginning, the annual Muharram mourning ceremonies were observed with great pageantry and emotion. Veneration of deceased heroes had long been an important part of Persian culture; the theme of redemption through sacrifice found parallels in such pre-Islamic legends as the death of Siavash and in the ancient Mesopotamian ritual of Adonis-Tamuz." >>> Peter Chelkowski on Taziyeh
