Die Zoroastrische Zeitvorstellung from the Author: Kianoosh Rezania. Kianoosh Rezania unternimmt in seiner Studie "Die zoroastrische Zeitvorstellung" eine detaillierte Charakterisierung der Zeitkonzeptionen des Zoroastrismus. Dabei geht er uber die Untersuchung der Konzeption von Zeit in alt- und jungavestischen sowie mittelpersischen zoroastrischen Texten der historischen Entwicklung des Zoroastrismus nach. Themen wie die Schopfung der Zeit, das Verhaltnis von Zeit und Bewegung, der Ablauf der Zeit, die Zusammenhange von Zeit und Schicksal sowie Zeitordnungssysteme finden hier besondere Beachtung. Berucksichtigt wird zudem die Nebenuberlieferung uber das zoroastrische Zeitverstandnis, insbesondere die christlichen Berichte aus der Sasanidenzeit und die arabischen Zeugnisse aus der islamischen Zeit. Auf der Grundlage dieser Quellen stellt Rezania eine neue Interpretation des Zurwan-Mythos und seiner kosmogonischen Konzeption der Ewigkeit vor. In einem abschliessenden Teil wendet er sich dem seit mehr als 200 Jahren in der Forschung diskutierten Zurvanismus und dem Verhaltnis der beiden kosmogonischen Konzeptionen des Zurwan-Mythos und des Pahlavi-Schopfungmythos zu. Die aus der Analyse gewonnenen Ergebnisse erlauben es ihm, die Frage zu erhellen, ob Zurwan-Mythos und Pahlavi-Mythos zwei rivalisierende synchrone oder aber zwei asynchron miteinander in Einklang stehende kosmogonische Konzeptionen sind.

The Zoroastrian Flame from the Author: Alan Williams. Zoroastrianism has always commanded interest way beyond the circles of its actual adherents. Its unbroken history, remarkable texts and distinctive beliefs span three millennia, making it one of the world’s most venerable faiths. For many centuries, from the birth of the religion late in the second millennium BC to its influence on the Achaemenids and later adoption in the third century AD as the state religion of the Sasanian Empire, it enjoyed imperial patronage and profoundly shaped the culture of antiquity. The Magi of the New Testament most probably were Zoroastrian priests from the Iranian world, while the enigmatic figure of Zarathushtra (or Zoroaster) himself has exerted continual fascination in the West, influencing creative artists as diverse as Voltaire, Nietzsche, Mozart and Yeats. This authoritative volume brings together internationally recognised scholars to explore Zoroastrianism in all its rich complexity. Examining key themes such as history and modernity, tradition and scripture, art and architecture and minority status and religious identity, it places the modern Zoroastrians of Iran, and the Parsis of India, in their proper contexts. The book extends and complements the coverage of its companion volume, The Everlasting Flame.

Les Livres De L Avesta from the Author: Pierre Lecoq. Le mazdéisme (religion d'Ahura Mazdâ) ou zoroastrisme (religion de Zoroastre) est l'une des plus antiques croyances de l'Orient. Elle a été professée par les anciens Iraniens et est exposée dans les livres de l'Avesta ainsi que dans les textes pehlevis (moyen-perses), plus tardifs. Cette religion a eu une influence considérable, au point d'intriguer les philosophes grecs et d'influencer les systèmes religieux voisins. Mais les vicissitudes de l'histoire ont fait que ces grands textes de l'humanité sont peu à peu tombés dans l'oubli. De cette splendeur passée, il ne reste que les modestes communautés zoroastriennes d'Iran et les Parsis de Bombay. Pour le grand public d'Occident, seuls survivent, dans la mémoire collective, les rois mages, dont l'un était iranien. Il est pourtant indispensable de sauver cette théologie de l'oubli. Au-delà du monothéisme exigeant du judaïsme, du christianisme et de l'islam, au-delà du polythéisme foisonnant des Grecs, des Romains et des Hindous, le mazdéisme offre une solution originale au problème lancinant du bien et du mal. Le dualisme tente de résoudre d'une manière originale ce problème récurrent chez les théologiens et les philosophes. La présente traduction est précédée d'une introduction à la religion mazdéenne. Avec les notes explicatives des textes et un index détaillé, on dispose ainsi d'un instrument de travail, dont on peut espérer qu'il stimulera les études d'histoire des religions et qu'il sortira des ténèbres l'une des plus brillantes contributions des Iraniens à la civilisation universelle.

An Iranian Town In Transition from the Author: Christoph Werner. An Iranian Town in Transition deals with the social and economic history of Tabriz, a town in north-west Iran and the centre of the historical province Azerbaijan. The focus of this study is on the notables of the town in an epoch of fundamental change that stretches from the mid-eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth century. Far from narrating a simple history of events, the study addresses major questions related to endowments (waqf), the workings of the Shiite judiciary, urban and provincial administration, the changing role of the 'ulama, and tenure of landed property in concrete case-studies. With its wide perspective on developments in urban society, the study interprets the process of social change in the transitional period from the Zands to the Qajars as a crucial starting point for the modern history of Iran. Stressing the importance of indigenous sources for this period, the author drew heavily on hitherto neglected Persian archival material. A large number of documents, deeds, and court protocols are included in critical edition in the appendix.

Revisiting Hormuz from the Author: Dejanirah Couto. The volume "Revisiting Hormuz," gathers the proceedings of a Conference organized in March 2007 by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, through its Centre Culturel Calouste Gulbenkian in Paris. The year 2007, exactly five centuries after the Portuguese first landed on the island of Hormuz, seemed to the scientific coordinators Rui Manuel Loureiro and Dejanirah Couto a very appropriate moment to bring together a large group of specialists that could establish the current state of the art in field of the history of Portuguese interactions with Hormuz and the Persian Gulf region. The chronological borders of the Conference, quite naturally, were extended to the early decades of the 17th century, to include the final departure of the Portuguese from Hormuz in 1622 and subsequent developments. Although the focus of the Paris Conference was supposed to be history, in any of its political, social, economic or cultural variants, the complex nature of Portuguese interactions with Hormuz and Safavid Persia, that spanned for more than a century, and also the existence of an important monumental heritage of Portuguese origin in the Gulf area, made the presence of art historians, architects, and archaeologists desirable.
