About this product
- DescriptionIdentifying the three core components of an imperial theology that have transhistorical and contemporary relevance: dualistic ethics, a theory of divine election, and a sense of salvific mission, the author shows how these religious ideas shaped Achaemenian practice and brought the Persians unprecedented wealth, power, and territory, and more.
