Zoroastrianism: From Antiquity to the Modern Period (History of Science, Philosophy and Culture in Indian Civilization, Volume VII, Part 8)
Munshiram Manoharlal Publishers Pvt. Ltd.; New Delhi, India; 2012; 8187586575 / 9788187586579; First Edition; Hard Cover; New; New; 
Zoroastrianism: from Antiquity to the Modern Period is an interdisciplinary work in the study of Zoroastrianism from its birth around three and half millennia back in ancient Iran to contemporary times. It emphasizes the important role that it played in not only the formation of Iranian culture, but also emphasizes its role in the construction of the humanist idea of the dialogue of civilizations in the ancient world. Challenging the now fashionable theme of the ?East?/?West? divide, as also the infamous theory of the ?clash of civilizations?, this volume initiates the theme of unified world culture where Iran was the bridge between India in the East and Greece and Rome in the West. Thus the close relation of Zoroastrianism with early Hinduism is brought out, as also the relation between Zoroastrianism with Greek philosophy, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. This volume covers topics like the close relation between Iran and India, comparison between the Rgveda and the Avesta, ethics in Zoroastrianism, the place of gender in Zoroastrian eschatology and the role played by the Parsis in the formation of secular, democratic, modern India.
