Farman-e-Koroush – The Cylinder of Cyrus the Great
An archeological icon from Babylon, the Cylinder of Cyrus the Great, currently on loan from the British Musuem on a five city tour of the United States, lifts up the freedom of peoples to practice their beliefs without hindrance or obstruction. To commemorate this museum tour, which was curated in collaboration with the Sackler and Freer Galleries of the Smithsonian institutions in Washington D.C., the Federation of Zoroastrian Associations of North America, has brought out a special issue of its quarterly FEZANA Journal.
What lessons can we learn form this proclamation of freedom from antiquity, as we seek to find harmony in our modern day, multi-cultural, multi-lingual and multi-ethnic world which mirrors the history and times of the Achemenid Empire ?
