    Zoroastrian Apocalyptic Texts as History

    Associate Director, Dr. Samuel M. Jordan Center for Persian Studies and Culture

    Professor Daryaee will speak on the importance of Zoroastrian Apocalyptic texts for understanding religious and political movements in antiquity and the early medieval period. These Zoroastrian Pahlavi texts, some still virtually unexplored, inform us about the Arsacid religion, Sasanian Zoroastrian Orthodoxy and the early Iranian political and sectarian movements in the seventh and eighth centuries CE.

    Following the main presentation, Dr. Daryaee will show and discuss pictures of the 700-year-old Avesta manuscript recently acquired by National Iranian Archives. In his recent visit to Iran he was one of the few experts who could see and examine this remarkable manuscript.

    Dr. Daryaee’s research has focused on ancient and early medieval history of Iran, specifically the Sasanian Empire. He has worked on Middle Persian literature, editing and translating several texts with commentary on geography, dinner speech, chess and backgammon. He is also interested in the history of Zoroastrianism in Late Antiquity and its encounter with Islam. He is the editor of the Name-ye Iran-e Bastan: The International Journal of Ancient Iranian Studies as well as the electronic journal, Bulletin of Ancient Iranian History and the director of Sasanika: Late Antique Near East Project.

    Co-sponsored by the Hamid and Christina Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies

    This event is part of Stanford’s lecture series in Zoroastrian Studies.
