A reproduction of discourse conflicts between traditionalist, modernist and religious reformers in Iran’s constitutional era necessitates a revision on intellectual legacy of those discourses. So a discourse analysis on the Religious Knowledge Reformation in the constitutional era is an answer to this need. In this context to recognize the characteristics of Religious Knowledge Reformation discourse, Al-Jamal newspaper readout was put on the agenda. Critical discourse analysis is a theoretical framework with the help of which we have analyzed and recognized the characteristics of Religious Knowledge Reformation discourse. According to this framework, any text is based on the dominated historical context and is formulated through inter-discourse act by absorbing intellectual legacies from other discourses. By applying the critical discourse analysis on the text of Al-Jamal newspaper we understand that the historical crisis at the time of constitutional era, such as domestic tyranny, foreign exploitation and the attitude against the cultural elements of modernism, had been the major problems regarding the discourse practice of Religious Knowledge Reformation. This research confirms the critical role of Al-Jamal newspaper in producing inter-discourse act by absorbing some elements from traditional and modern discourses to overcome the historical problems
