Zoroastrianism and the Parsis - Professor Almut Hintze

Hosted by The Last Tuesday Society & The Viktor Wynd Museum of Curiosities

This illustrated talk highlights some aspects of the history, teachings and religious practice of a little known religion, Zoroastrianism. Once the official creed of mighty Persian Empires, Zoroastrianism probably had an influence on the religious ideas of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It survives to the present day as the faith of small but influential minorities in Iran, India and diaspora communities around the globe.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite.
