Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of legal and technical terms relevant to the discussion of the temptation of Zarathustra, whom Ahriman urged to renounce the good religion, promising him in return sovereignty over the world. The Zoroastrian community had to observe and apply its numerous practical regulations in everyday life. Most of these are purity laws concerned with driving away demons from any of Ohrmazd's creations, persons, or objects that they may have polluted.

Keywords: Zarathustra; Zoroastrian community
