Khurramites

   Religious sectarians of Armenia (q.v.) and Azerbaijan, led by a certain Babek, who rebelled against the caliph Mamun (qq.v.). The rebellion was perhaps largely responsible for the cessation of military hostilities between the caliphate and Byzantium (q.v.) from 814-829. In 834 a large number of Khurramites led by Nasr (Theophobos [q.v.]), fled to Byzantine territory, where Theophilos (q.v.) enrolled them in the army (q.v.).
