The 1979 Revolution gave birth to a political order that defined God as its greatest protector and Satan as its ultimate foe. While scholars have long grappled with the Islamic Republic’s theological master narratives, Satan’s multifaceted role in the Iranian political and religious landscape remains poorly understood. In this talk, I offer an analysis of a range of sources— textual, ethnographic, and audiovisual—to argue that in the past two decades, confrontations with the Accursed One have fragmented into contradictory, anxiety-ridden struggles for the soul of the Islamic Republic.

During the 2016 Presidential Campaign Season, candidates have each spoken about Muslims, some making sweeping statements. Candidate Donald Trump has called for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. and while other Republican and Democratic candidates have criticized his position, what is missing from the discussion is meaningful data answering the most common questions about the Muslims already living in the United States: Who are they? What are their attitudes toward America? How do their values compare to those of other religious groups?
