A SOAS Centenary Exhibition
The Everlasting Flame, Zoroastrianism in History and Imagination
will be hosted by the National Museum in Delhi and sponsored by the Ministry for Minority Affairs (MOMA). It is the first time a SOAS exhibition will be held outside the United Kingdom. Work on religious minorities and diaspora communities has long been part of SOAS’s academic remit within a number of subject disciplines. The showcasing in Delhi of our exhibition on Zoroastrianism is a wonderful opportunity for us to collaborate with academic and cultural institutions in India.
The Everlasting Flame exhibition was produced in SOAS’s Brunei Gallery in Autumn 2013. It is the first exhibition of it kind to provide a visual narrative of the history of Zoroastrianism, its rich cultural heritage and the influence it has had on the major world religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
In Delhi the Everlasting Flame, Zoroastrianism in History and Imagination is part of a wider Everlasting Flame Programme, organised by UNESCO Parzor, that includes two exhibitions that focus on the Parsis as well as numerous events.
