The Persian Empire is your opportunity to see one of the greatest empires in the ancient world from a fresh new perspective: its own. Over the span of 24 fascinating lectures, Professor John W. I. Lee of the University of California, Santa Barbara—a distinguished teacher and an expert on the long-buried secrets of the ancient world—takes the role of a history detective and examines Persian sources to reveal what we now know about this grand civilization.
The Origins of the 'Second' Temple: Persian Imperial Policy and the Rebuilding of Jerusalem (Bibleworld) (repost)

Diana Edelman, "The Origins of the 'Second' Temple: Persian Imperial Policy and the Rebuilding of Jerusalem (Bibleworld)"

Darius I, King of Persia, claims to have accomplished many deeds in the early years of his reign, but was one of them the rebuilding of the temple in Jerusalem? The editor who added the date to the books of Haggai and Zechariah thought so, and the author of Ezra 1-6 then relied on his dates when writing his account of the rebuilding process.

What do we know about the Persian Empire? For most of the past 2,500 years, we've heard about it from the ancient Greek perspective: a decadent civilization run by despots, the villains who lost the Battle of Marathon and supplied the fodder for bad guys in literature and film. But is this image really accurate?…

Hippocrates, Volume I: Ancient Medicine (Loeb Classical Library, No. 147) by Hippocrates
English | Jan 1, 1923 | ISBN: 0674991621 | 432 Pages | PDF | 13 MB

Hippocrates, said to have been born in Cos in or before 460 BCE, learned medicine and philosophy; travelled widely as a medical doctor and teacher; was consulted by King Perdiccas of Macedon and Artaxerxes of Persia; and died perhaps at Larissa. Apparently he rejected superstition in favour of inductive reasoning and the study of real medicine as subject to natural laws, in general and in individual people as patients for treatment by medicines and surgery.

Shortlisted for the prestigious Gramophone Awards in 2013, the CD version of Vinci's Artaserse was described by Gramophone as a "sensational landmark recording;" International Record Review judged it "an outstanding performance and the most important Baroque opera discovery of the year so far," with the reviewer adding: "I can't recommend it highly enough, especially if you like countertenors," while The Guardian said, "The singing is epoch-making." When, in late 2012, the opera was staged at the Opéra National de Lorraine in Nancy in an extravagant, Baroque-inspired production by Silviu Purcãrete, the response was no less enthusiastic.
