Inhaltsangabe

Ancient Iran: Cosmology, Mythology, History presents Iran's pre-Islamic history within the context of both its complex cosmology and rich mythology. The audiobook uses the concept of farr to show how authority, finding guidance in the cosmic realm, organized the lives of Iran's hero-saints in the mythic realm. It also discusses how historical monarchs organized their hierarchical societies according to the dictates of Ahura Mazda.

The audiobook is divided into three parts. The first part examines cosmology, concentrating on Ahura Mazda and the Ahuric order that emanates from him. The next section addresses mythology and describes how the rulership of hero-saints promoted the farr, culminating in the unique creed of Zoroaster. The final section tells the history of pre-Islamic Iran. It begins with a study of life on the plateau, moves on to the stages of empire and concludes with the rule of the Parthians and Sassanids.

Additionally, through a new interpretation of Firdowsi's Shahname, the volume shows how the prophet Zoroaster reorganized Mazdian cosmology to fit the ethical, philosophical, and sociological dynamics of Achaemenid and Sassanid Iran.

    "History lessons for supernatural humans"

    The idea of an history of the empire of Persians, Parthians and Medes as a complementary reading to the "decline and fall of the Roman Empire" by Eduard Gibbons seemed to me to be a good idea. The harsh "rating" is most probably a consequence of the unfair comparison between a masterpiece of humanity and an enumeration of concepts, facts and dates in mythological and historic Persia: it is probably worthwhile for the superhuman who is able to capture all names in a glimpse. But to what use, if approx. 90 % of them are just an unique occurence in the book.

    The topic of Persia and its history remains however a fascinating one and a proof that the world from India to Europa has been intertwined since the beginning of human history. So I will continue my search for another more fascinating book about the subject.
