Upon formation of intellectual, political, religious, and nationalist movements in the history of Iran, certain activities were staged to confront foreign influence and change in the political structure of the country. In the meantime, Nationalization of the Iranian Oil Industry was an outstanding movement, which took place upon integration of two religious and nationalist movements against foreign colonialism and domestic despotism.
The principal question of this paper revolves around the role of religious movement in nationalization of the oil industry and on what the impact of this experience was on formation of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.
