I am a Stuart girl, and love Charles II, but who doesn’t?

My other history crush is his dad, Charles I. Why? I can’t explain it. After reading about his upbringing as the sickly second child of a Scottish King, living in the shadow of his brother and having a lot to overcome to become the King of England, I think I felt bad for him. He liked to assert himself because he was insecure. He sometimes was pretty arrogant, but I think that was to hide his insecurities and feeling of inadequacy. To hear of his love for his wife which grew and built up is quite sweet despite the way it started. 

Basically, I like him. I like learning about him, and whether or not he was very wrong in what he believed, I always feel bad about his death at the roundheads’ hands.

Burning the Books of the Prophet

Zoroastrianism, arguably the world’s first religion to worship just one god, still exists today – mainly in India. But it barely survived an ancient blow. Specifically, the conquests of Alexander the Great.

When Alexander took Persia in the 320s BCE, large portions of the compiled works of Zarathustra were lost, in the destruction of cities and holy places. Some say it had once been over 12,000 pages. What remained was re-collected after Alexander’s death, named the Avesta, and standardized into a five-part text which is still used by believers today.

The main section, named the Gathas, is the oldest: it contains 17 hymns believed to have been written by Zarathustra during his lifetime. Other sections contain prayers, rituals, accounts of how the world was created, and Zoroastrian law.
