In the study of the contemporary history of Iran, especially the victory of Islamic Revolution, establishment of the Islamic Revolution Council can be taken as the first step towards institutionalization of the Islamic Republic system. Studying the need for and performance of this council in the developments in Iran - with respect to the vital conditions in the early years after the victory of Islamic Revolution – in various fields such as legislative and executive forces as well as directing the course of revolution in the light of the leadership of the Islamic movement is very important. This Revolution Council was established upon the prudence of Imam Khomeini and his comrades, since with the culmination of the Islamic Revolution and the appearance of various political parties there was a need for creation of a center to prevent any deviation from revolutionary tenets and to organize the course of fights and administration of the country after the revolution. This paper has tried to review and analyze the above-17-month performance of the Council of Islamic Revolution in its various periods from new angles.
