English Abstract:

Game hunting has always been a crucial part of the life of the Muslims, especially for the upper class and the privileged ones. However, it should be remembered that in the Islamic world the art of hunting has always been popular with all social strata. In this paper, a part of its title – hunting culture – shall be considered pursuant to the following definition: ‘(…) całokształt duchowych i materialnych osiągnięć łowiectwa [all of spiritual and material achievements of hunting]’ (Milczarek 2001, 9). Therefore, this term shall include the history, traditions and customs of game hunting, all hunting inspirations in music, art and literature, as well as the products of the hunting craft, or, to put it into a more general context – various objects and materials related to hunting. From the point of view of such a definition of hunting culture, a special position is occupied by the areas where Islam, during its expansion, encountered the ancient and fully established hunting ethos. One of the examples is the areas classified as belonging to the so-called Persian-Indian hunting subculture of the Muslim world, and the article focuses on the first element of the term Persian-Indian. The author of the paper shall focus on the issues related to the images of hunting in that geographical area (the present-day Iranian territory as the cradle of falconry), and to the hunting ethos in Persian literature and art. The author shall also endeavour to discuss the matter of potential continuation of the ancient Persian hunting traditions in the present-day Islamic Republic of Iran.
