Abstract [en]

Among the Persian historiographical works written in the Ottoman Empire, the Hasht bihisht (The Eight Paradises) is probably the most important and is often considered a milestone in the development of Ottoman historiography. The first purpose of this article is to provide detailed descriptions of the three oldest extant manuscripts of the work, which Mehmed SUKRU (in his article in Der Islam more than eighty years ago) states are the autographs. These manuscripts are Esad Efendi No. 2197, Nuruosmaniye No. 3209, and Ayasofya No. 3541. The second purpose of this article is to examine the possibility of the existence of the "original wording" of the work. This article addresses the question of whether we need a critical edition of the work, or we already have the "original wording."
