comment Did the Safavid rulers require all subjects to convert to Shi'a Islam?
Agree with @FelixGoldberg . Statements such as "All Safavids were absolutely righteous" are usually false. Besides, religious requirements such as "Judaism and Christianity should be tolerated" lend themselves to different interpretations (for example, the Moghuls tolerated Hinduism, although it is polytheistic).

Good point. The Church prohibited slavery, yet serfs existed. Probably the reason they were not considered "slaves" is that their rights changed over time from land leasers to slaves, or vice versa. E.g., in Russia, there was St. Yuri's day, when a serf could leave his master for another one, but later it was abolished, and thus the serfs were deprived of their last right.

Yes, and holy books also say that slaves have certain rights.
