During the 10th century AH, the Ottoman reign, which reached its apex in the ages of Selīm I and Süleymān the Magnificent, was flourished and developed in many aspects of court, administrative, military, economy and art because of numerous factors. In this research, the role of Iranians in the artistic and bureaucratic writings of the Ottoman Empire has been considered as one of the important factors in development and progress of the Ottomans’ during the century. The historical documents, sources, and related studies indicate that the Iranian scribes played a significant role in two aspects of writing: book design and administrative writings. An increase in the number of books by transcription of religious, literary, historical and scientific works, artistic inventions, the transfer of Iranian artistic heritage into the Ottoman Empire, strengthening of court writing, and providing a skillful personnel were some of those activities that led to the reinforcement, development and expansion of court writings. These efforts along with other policies in the different sectors of government brought about the Ottomans’ glory in the 10th century AH.
