Yazdgerd Wants Peace With Romans

Oct, 22, 399 AD

Yazd FirealtarAccording to the report by the Roman ambassador to Tisfun, Yazdgerd I in his first public meeting expressed his willingness to follow a dialogue policy rather than war with Romans because resources on both sides were being wasted. Yazdgerd's reign lasted for 21 years during which he observed a policy of tolerance towards all religions; however Zoroastrian priests called him "Yazdgerd the sinner" for the same reason. After the Roman emperor's death Yazdgerd accepted raising his son as mentioned in the emperor's last will. (Updated: Dec, 22, 2007)
