The main purpose of the paper is to study rationalism in Dante’s Divine Comedy and Ardaviraf. Wisdom is like a textile, which consists of fibers called knowledge and sagacity. The duty of sages has been to transform these initial materials into practical products; On the other hand, wisdom is the reflexive of knowledge that we should use to reach upper level of humanity.

In this paper an attempt is made to use library based and descriptive research methodology; the results show that Iranian people are considered as rational people history. For example, Ahura Mazda in Zoroastrianism is the symbol of wisdom and he was considered as an honest man who was in favor of truth; he was the source of goodness.

On the other hand, Dante’s Divine Comedy has taken a long step in breaking the spell that church had imposed on Dante’s contemporary society; it is also the first step towards the new revival in the dark history of the middle ages. It is the beginning of the golden age of the Renaissance; it is also the beginning of rationality and humanism in the golden age of the European history.
