The Qur'an’s emphasis on history and taking lessons from it caused Muslims to pay close attention to the science of history and historiography since the advent of Islam. At the beginning, Islamic historiography was strengthened through Sirah-writing. Despite all existing obstacles, the Shi’ah, besides Sirah-writing, embarked upon other types of historiography such as Maghtal-writing creating valuable works in this field as well. Books produced in Maghtal-writing by the Shi'ah are mostly descriptions of the martyrdom of the Infallible Imams (A) and other prominent Shi'ah personalities such as Hujr ibn al-‘Adi. Refering to the Shi'ah concordance sources such as those compiled by Najashi, Sheikh Tusi and others, this paper aims at the compilation and creation of biographies of Shi'ah Maghtal-writers from the beginning to the end of 5th century A.H. lunar.
