The Zoroastrian Tradition: An Introduction to the Ancient Wisdom of Zarathushtra
"This book is concerned with the doctrinal beliefs of the practising Zoroastrians examined within the frames of the Gothic principals. Variances in the current practice are considered. The doctrinal changes are explained in the light of socio-political forces operating in each distinct historical era. In this exercise no scholarly speculation is taken on face value."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
