Abstract

Introduction: This article discusses three significant hospitals that were constructed in medieval Persia, specifically in the city of Shiraz, which is located in central present-day Iran. The first of these three hospitals is the Azodi Hospital, which was constructed during the Buyid dynasty. The second hospital was constructed during the Salghurid dynasty and is referred to as the Mozzafari Hospital by a primary source written by Qutb al-Din Shirazi, a physician who worked there. The third hospital is also referred to as the Mozzafari Hospital and was constructed during the Mozzafarid dynasty. Recent efforts have yielded archaeological evidence that marks the location in present-day Shiraz of this third hospital or an area south of its location. The evidence consists of the gravesite for Seyed Sharaf al-Din Jorjani, a prominent theologian who was employed by Shah Shoja of the Mozzafarid dynasty in the fourteenth century ce. at the compound containing the third hospital. Conclusion: The gravesite for Sharaf al-Din Jorjani in present-day Shiraz marks the site of the remains of the Mozzafari Hospital built during the reign of Shah Shoja of the Mozzafarid dynasty or an area south of Shah Shoja's Mozzafari Hospital.
