    - Sasanian society was clearly from all points a very religious one, to the extent of fanaticism. The Sasanian empire and vast majority of its citizens were of Zoroastrian background under the keen control of vigilant Zoroastrian clergy known as magi.   About the Book. Rabbis, Sorcerers, Kings, and Priests examines the impact of the Persian Sasanian context on the Babylonian Talmud, perhaps the most important corpus in the Jewish sacred canon. What impact did the Persian Zoroastrian Empire, as both a real historical force and an imaginary interlocutor, have on rabbinic identity and authority as expressed in the Talmud?

    The Sasanian Empire had many large, multicultural and typically heavily defended cities. Literary sources are filled with direct or indirect references to the deportation or internal transfer of populations from one region to another, and boosting the urban population was clearly an important part of imperial economic planning, but there has been relatively little study of Sasanian urbanism. - Zoroastrian Art Sassanian Silver Gilt plate depicting a royal Hunt. 7th c.
