The constraints and limitations in dictatorial society of Bayhaqi's age appear in his historical text as semantic complexities and contradictions that have made it full of mysterious intentions and ambiguities. Comprehending the true meaning of the texts without analyzing these complexities is nearly impossible. As a historian who tries to write and express the truth and feeling the possible risks of his work, resulted in complexities and ambiguities of Bayhaqi's special language in historiography. Conflicts and contradictions between Bayhaqi's scientific and logical attitude toward the historiography and the society's dictatorial conditions in that period, called "Context", appears in his work as semantic complexities and narrative contradictions.This force his readers to face problems in comprehending the true meaning of the context, hence they inevitably look for other's interpretations and analyses. In this study, Bayhaqi's historical context was analyzed, using hermeneutical techniques, in order to show his special method of historiography and explore some hidden facts. Moreover, this research actually is offering the benefits of using hermeneutic techniques to comprehend the true meaning of context and hidden historical facts of Bayhaqi's historiography. In fact, knowing these complexities within the context of Bayhaqi's work in larger is recognizing the existent complexities in Persian culture; which caused by dictatorial culture that made people of this culture to speak and write through its dictatorial framework
