This series of three books is a modern adaptation of the Shahnameh (Persian: شاهنامه ‎), a long epic poem written by the Persian poet Ferdowsi between c. and CE. Beginning in ancient times Persia has been a center of scientific achievement and was often the conduit of knowledge from China and India in the East to Greece and Rome in the West. Although Arabic remains the primary language used for scientific writing in the Islamic world, many scholars have also produced a range of scientific manuscripts and works in the Persian language.

A record of the view that the Persians held of India, under the title Indica, it includes descriptions of god-like people, philosophers, artisans, and unquantifiable gold, among other riches and wonders. It is of value as it records the beliefs of the Persians about India. The book only remains in fragments and in reports made about the book by later authors.   Zoroastrianism is an ancient Persian religion that may have originated as early as 4, years ago. Arguably the world’s first monotheistic faith, it’s one of the oldest religions still in.

OCLC Number: Notes: "The Persians was first published in by J.M. Dent & Sons under the title The Persian Empire. The text of this edition follows that of the first edition with minor emendations."--Title page verso.   The Vendidad text provides insight on how one should practice Zoroastrianism and mentions various entities and rituals which predate the founding of the religion. The other major sources for Persian mythology are the Shahnameh (“The Book of Kings”) written by the Persian poet Abolqasem Ferdowsi (l. CE) drawing on the much earlier oral tradition, and the popular One Thousand .
