The School of the Esmā’ili Forts
 
 The Esmā’ili forts, in general, and the Qahestān Fort, in particular, had always served as havens for scholars and researchers like Bābā Afzal as well as scholars who were searching for a safe place after Khorāsān had been destroyed by the Mongols. For instance, a great thinker like Khwājeh Nasir al-Din Tusi had spent thirty fruitful years of his life, from the age of 27 to 57 years (624-654 AH/1227-1256 AD), in Qahestān and Alamut and had written his most renowned books, the “Akhlāq-e Nāseri” and the “Akhlāq-e Mohtashami” in honor of Nāser al-Din Abd al-Rahim bin Abi Mansur, the Mohtasham (governor) of Qahestān (ruled 633 AH/1236 AD). Subsequently, Khwājeh Nasir had left for Alamut where he lived until the collapse of this fort and where he wrote his philosophical works. Besides serving as patrons for scholars some Esmā’ili rulers were themselves of scholarly aptitude and had even produced several books and treatises, as testified by their friends and foes alike.
