Jason Reza Jorjani, PhD, is a philosopher and author of Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, Novel Folklore: The Blind Owl of Sadegh Hedayat, and Iranian Leviathan: A Monumental History of Mithra's Abode.

Here he describes the complex relationship between Mithraism and Zoroastrianism. Over time, each of these traditions have incorporated the other, while also standing opposed to key principles in the other. The god, Mithra, is typically symbolized slaying a bull -- and is considered to embody a consciousness beyond the restrictions of time and fate. At one time, Mithraism was the dominant religion of the Roman army. Jorjani speculates that Constantine made Christianity the Roman state religion as a response to the threat he saw posed by Mithraism.

Many viewers will know that Jason Reza Jorjani has suffered from libel and persecution as a result of his, generally misunderstood, political views. He is a brilliant scholar who has now been unfairly disgraced and is forced to fight a legal battle, while continuing his research and writing, without any regular employment. Therefore we have set up this 'Go Fund Me' page in order to assist this worthy individual. Please visit https://gofundme.com/f/help-jason-rez... and contribute generously.
