Abstract:   (4333 Views)
Scholars in mysticism use metaphoric language certainly not to tell stories but to discuss other mystic topics. Among Muslim scholars, Jalāl al-din Mowlavi has used this method. One of the most important and longest stories in his work is the story of Hoosh-Roba palace or Zāt al-Sowar palace intended to explain man’s mystic journey. Among Christians, Trezā Avilaie (1515- 1582) expresses the same issue in the valuable work called "the palace". This paper mainly concentrates on the comparable aspects of the mentioned works, showing how man’s self has been compared to a beautiful palace.
