Abstract
In this study, using the resources that have been made available with the expansion of computers and the
Internet, the use of the word “Zelzeleh” (earthquake) in the written works of Persian language and literature has
been studied. In this research, this word was investigated in Persian-speaking poets and writers from the fourth
century to the present. The use of “Zelzeleh” in Persian literature was divided into three parts, including literary
uses in expressing the grandeur and horror of something or an event, in the form of descriptions, similes,
allegories, metaphors, exaggerations and other verbal and spiritual Literary devices, poetry and prose, the
expression of the causes of earthquakes and also the presentation of information about the time and place of
earthquakes. Using the resources available in the third category, a number of historical earthquakes that can be
extracted from the mentioned texts were identified and introduced. These earthquakes occurred in the period
from 654 to 1287 AH.

Key words: historical Earthquake. History of science, literature, Persian language, Written heritage
