Quick Overview

The history of the European representation of Zoroaster (Zarathushtra) uncovers the image of both the man and his teaching as seen through a Western lens. Analyzing the process of the reception by and transmission to European eyes, Rose's impressive study reveals the historical depiction of the prophet and his teaching.
