The official religion and political ideology of the Islamic Republic of Iran since the revolution of 1979 have produced a wide repertoire of religious ideas and practices. However, beyond the apparent uniformity of the representations that have been given, a plurality of religious facts have emerged. This dossier, "Religions in Iran", proposes to explore them in investigations which are divided into two parts: the first concerns the majority and official religion, duodecimal Shi'ism, and the second broadens the subject to the margins of Shi'ism and to other confessions, Sunnism and Mandeism.
"Religions in Iran" is the result of exchanges and meetings conducted for several years with Iranian researchers in order to compare points of view and establish a dialogue between different scientific practices. These research practices are linked to the conditions of knowledge production of each other. They are also the result of intellectual traditions in the field of human and social sciences, and of the conversation that takes place between them. The whole constitutes a composite picture of practices within a society torn between hyper-traditionalism and hyper-modernity, between official religion and the arts of doing to reinvent religion.
