The Persians – Power and Glory in Anatolia
During the Persian adventure from east to west, the people of Anatolia live for 200 years under the tolerant jurisdiction of an empire with a culture and belief system distinctly foreign to them, nevertheless one that ruled based on an ideology of tolerance for 200 years. The culturally diverse land of Anatolia is deeply influenced by, and has a profound impact on the cultural exchange that took place throughout this period. Due to its geographical location Anatolia becomes the scene of encounters between the Persians and the Greeks, and facilitates the cultural blending of these eastern and western civilizations. Many new customs and practices are introduced into Anatolia with the Persians – Zoroastrianism, satrapal governance, the Royal Road, and the first postal service, to name a few – which synthesizes with the local cultural elements. This volume aims to shed a light on the process that culminated in this unique cultural fusion, as well as at all the regions and peoples that contributed to its creation. It is a rigorous “first step” towards the ultimate goal, which is to make known all aspects of Anatolia under Persian domination; and as such it is a pioneering undertaking that we hope will inspire further publications.
