This book is a collection of three lectures by the East Institute. R The comma was held in August 2010. The first lecture, entitled “The Shah is Dead, The Lives of Many Kings and Queens: The Imperial Sassanian in Chaos (651-590 AD)”, studied the end of the Sassanid era from the death of Khosrow II in 628 AD. Until the invasion of Muslim Arabs to Fars in 634 AD. Will pay. This speech deals with the chaos after the death of Khosrow II and gives a picture of the end of the Sassanian Empire and how it collapsed. The last two decades of Sassanian history are divided into three special periods: 1. The period of brotherhood and decreasing the legitimacy of the kingdom (630-628 AD), which begins with the kingdom of Qobad II and his son Ardeshir III; The period of buckling and separation (632-630 CE), which was the reign of many kings and queens, such as Buran, Azromidokht, Khosrow III, Khosrow IV, and the victor, who sometimes co-ruled; The Monarchy Period (653-632 AD), which is itself during this period, coincided with the rule of Yazdgerd III and the conquest of Muslim Arabs in Iran.
The second lecture, entitled “War, Blood and Victory: Conquering Persians by Muslim Arabs,” will provide the coinage data needed to study the conquest of Persia and its history and how to conquer Persia by the Muslim Arabs. The early conquest of Persia was totally bloody, and as the people of Fars province could not resist the Muslim Arabs by using the force, they repeatedly rebelled. It also shows that the dates given in Islamic texts for the conquest of Persia do not coincide with the coinage data, and it seems that the conquest of Persia and, in general, the Sassanid Empire by Muslim Arabs seems to be much longer than that reported.
The third lecture entitled “Sustainability of Persians and Memory, Zoroastrian Revelation as History,” will study the conflicts and riots against the conquest of Iran by the Muslim Arabs and the compromises that were eventually created between the conquerors and the defeated.
Also, the activities of local independent governors and other claimants, such as Muslim Arab rebels and various religious sects, will be explored for power in Fars province. Finally, this speech tries to show how the Zoroastrian people of Fars saw their plight as a result of political and compromise. This will be clarified by looking at the Zoroastrian apocalyptic literature, which gives a public view of the political events of the eighth and ninth centuries. Also, these texts reflect the last Sassanian effort to withdraw Iran from the hands of the Arab Muslims.
