It seems that one of the most important issues in the religious government is the way of interaction between “Vali-e Faghih” and the clerical establishment, especially the religious authority institution, which could affect parts of conflicts or coordination between the religious society and the political leadership. The attitudes of religious authority towards its way of interaction with the political leadership on the one hand and the point that whether or not “Vali-e Faghih” himself is a religious authority on the other, could add special complexities to this relationship and make the relation between these two institutions one of the most critical issues in the religious government. Reviewing the procedure and documentary texts shows that there is no agreed idea or pattern in this regard which could cover such a relationship and this interaction has experienced ebbs and flows under the influence of historical and political conditions. However, current speculations show that there are several theories and patterns regarding this issue and we can review them and assess their methodological results within the contexts of two classical and modern approaches.
