Seminary (Madrese/Theological School)

The “madreseh”, or seminary, is an institution providing religious education. Students, known as “talabeh”, usually study a minimum of seven years, to become a low-level preacher, or “mullah”.

Higher ranked clergymen include “Hojjat al-Islam” and “Mojtahed” (or “Ayatollah”). The Shia clergy in Iran usually wear a white turban and an “aba”, a loose, sleeve less brown or black cloak, open in front. If a clergyman is a “seyed”, descendant of Mohammad, he wears a black turban.

Theological colleges, the main eivan is the entrance to the domed chamber or else leads directly to the prayer room. Depending on the situation of the college, the other eivans are used as classrooms; frequently one of the three remaining eivans forms the main entrance to the college.
