Abstract The core concept of this article is the comparative study of the reflection of a common theme in the works of artists from different cultural backgrounds. The theme of temptation is common in the works of two artists studied here. "The temptations of Saint Anthony" by Hieronymus Bosch, the Flemish painter in the early sixteenth century and a miniature from Saadi's Bustan, "the Prophet Yusuf rejects Zuleykha" by Kamaledin Bihzad, the Persian master painter in the late 9th and early 10th century Hijra (early 16th century). The article studies the approach of each painter to the concept of "Temptation" and their perception of this phenomenon, how each one has tried to express their perception and the visual narrative they offer their audience. Through these comparisons and analysis, the authors try to examine the cultural differences as well as common cultural grounds between the Islamic and Christian cultures in one hand and on the other hand the artistic differences and similarities between the Flemish and Iranian painters' views.
