Title variants
Zoroastrianism in The History of Theophylact Simokatta
Languages of publication
Theophylact’s details about Zoroastrianism are inaccurrate, general and, at best, only confirming what is commonly known. Therefore, Oikumenike historia as a source to the study of this religion is not important. It must be stressed however, that Theophylact fully accepts and appreciates the crucial role of Zoroastrianism in preserving of Persian identity and culture. The article also briefly describes present demographic condition of the Zoroastrian communities around the world, recording some positive features and trends.
