Good-. An important study by Whitney (1834-1912). Zoroastrianism is considered an early influence on Judaism, Christianity and Islam, and one of the first monotheistic religions. It emphasizes that good and evil are separate entities at war with each other, in the form of Ormuzd (the god of good, creation and truth) and Ahriman (the god of evil destruction and lies), both ultimately descended from the Wise Lord, Ahura Mazda. The holy book of Zoroastrianism is the Avesta, which includes the hymns of Zoroaster (The Gathas, from which most of his biographical information comes), liturgical texts and prayers. The name Zoroaster is the corrupt Greek form of the old Iranian Zarathustra. Tissued Photo Frontis of the author. Red cloth with white titling on front and spine.
