‘Who are the Zoroastrians?’
Recorded at the British Academy Soirée, Tuesday 28 June 2016
Today Zoroastrians form a microscopically small community of ca. 120,000 people world-wide. Yet their contribution to society in their homeland Iran, and in diaspora communities in India and countries around the globe is considerable and out of all proportion to their numbers. This talk seeks to understand such an impressive achievement by exploring the world-view that underpins their influence.
