In this paper we study space- and time-fractional diffusion equations called Fractional Legendre-Pearson Diffusion Equations (FLPDEs) in finite space interval. We define the space fractional part using Fractional Legendre Operators and the time fractional part using Fractional Caputo derivative. We consider both the standard and symmetrized versions of FLPDEs. For both equations, we use the method of integral Legendre transform and inverse integral Legendre transform to solve the two equations. The solutions are given in the form of infinite series containing Legendre polynomials dependent on the space variable and Mittag-Leffler functions dependent on time. We demonstrate that these series are convergent. The simplicity with which the solutions of the FLPDEs are obtained in closed form should initiate further research in this field.
