This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

To begin with, Jews follow the religion known as Judaism whereas the religion of Zoroastrians is Zoroastrianism. The founder of Zoroastrianism was Zoroaster (Zarathustra Haechataspa) who lived from 660 to 583 BC in the area that is now part of western Iran although some claim that his birthplace is today’s Azerbaijan. In brief, Zoroastrianism is the religion of ancient Persia from the late sixth century b.c. on. It received its name from the Greek form of its founder’s name, Zoroaster, who lived sometime in the sixth century b.c. It survives today as the religion of the Gabars in Iran, the Parsis in India and in locations around the globe to which Indian people have emigrated. [1] Because of the force of Zoroaster’s eventual influence on the world, ancient writers embellished his legend with imaginary dates, such as 6000 b.c. Contemporary scholarship has produced highly divergent dates, with one writer going as far back as 1700 b.c.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
