Histoire de l'Empire perse : De Cyrus à Alexandre by Pierre Briant

By Pierre Briant

Pratiquement inconnu jusqu'alors sur les registres de l'Histoire, le peuple perse, depuis sa base de l'Iran méridional (Fàrs), se lance vers 550 av. J.-C. dans une aventure prodigieuse qui, sous los angeles conduite de Cyrus le Grand et de ses successeurs, va aboutir à los angeles création d'un empire colossal entre Asie centrale et Haute-Egypte, entre Indus et Danube. L'Empire perse ou Empire achéménide (du nom de los angeles dynastie régnante) a rassemblé en son sein des will pay, des peuples, des langues et des cultures d'une diversité prodigieuse. Cette conquête des will pay du Moyen-Orient a causé un bouleversement dans l'histoire du monde: pour l. a. première fois, un Etat unitaire aussi vaste que le futur Empire romain voit le jour et se développe durant plus de deux siècles (550-330). Cette histoire se poursuit jusqu'à los angeles mort d'Alexandre le Grand (323) qui, du aspect de vue géopolitique, est en quelque sorte " le dernier des Achéménides ". Aujourd'hui encore les terrasses, palais, reliefs, peintures et briques émaillées de Pasargades, Persépolis et Suse, les impressionnantes tombes royales de Naqsi-Rustam, los angeles statue monumentale de Darius le Grand, tout vient rappeler au visiteur abasourdi los angeles puissance et le luxe inouïs des Grands Rois et de leurs Fidèles.

Longtemps reléguée dans une ombre épaisse par le status conjugué de l'" Orient millénaire " et de l. a. " Grèce éternelle " dont elle était exclue, l'histoire achéménide a reçu une impulsion entièrement nouvelle au cours des vingt dernières années. Débarrassée des oripeaux de los angeles " décadence orientale " et de los angeles " stagnation asiatique ", l. a. recherche a également bénéficié de découvertes documentaires décisives dont le nombre n'a cessé de croître, qu'il s'agisse de textes ou de vestiges archéologiques, numismatiques ou bien iconographiques.

C'est cette documentation substantial et diversifiée que le livre met entre les mains du lecteur: les multiples citations de records écrits et insertions d'images permettent de suivre l'auteur dans sa démarche d'historien qui, à travers l'espace et le temps, cherche à comprendre remark naît, se développe et sombre un tel empire. Construit sur ces piliers documentaires, nourri par des discussions qui ne masquent pas les interrogations persistantes, clairement articulé autour de chapitres-bilans, ce livre sans précédent ni équivalent offre aussi le minutieux exposé des divergences interprétatives et des hypothèses possible choices, une bibliographie exhaustive et un index très développé. Il s'adresse aussi bien aux historiens, sociologues et anthropologues qu'au lecteur passionné de recherches historiques et de vastes espaces.

Pierre Briant, professeur d'histoire de l'Antiquité à l'université de Toulouse-II Le Mirail, est spécialiste de l'histoire du Moyen-Orient à l'époque de los angeles domination perse et des conquêtes d'Alexandre. Il est notamment l'auteur d'Alexandre le Grand (1994), d'Etat et pasteurs au Moyen-Orient ancien (1982), de Rois, tributs et paysans (1982) et de Darius, les Perses et l'Empire (1992).
