Chapter Summary

This bibliography presents a list of electronic editions, chrestomathy, translations, secondary literature and annotated bibliographies and also grammars and lexicon of Avestan as reference for the book on Introduction to Avestan. Avestan is written with an alphabet created expressly for the purpose of committing the corpus to writing; the creation of this alphabet is probably to be situated between the middle of the 7th century and the middle of the 9th century. The immediate model for the Avestan alphabet is a variety of the Pahlavi script: Book Pahlavi, used by theologians of the Zoroastrian church for their writings.

Keywords: Avestan; Book Pahlavi; Zoroastrian church
