Sample text

H. (1913) Early Zoroastrianism, London: Williams & Norgate, repr. 1972 (much of it outdated, but with an English trans. of the Gāthās, pp. 344–90, based on that of C. Bartholomae). S. (1938) Die Religionen des alten Iran, German trans. Hinrichs, repr. 1966 (much learned matter, but a generally rejected interpretation of Zarathushtra’s teachings: see Henning 1951 above). D. C. (1926) The Zoroastrian Doctrine of a Future Life from Death to the Individual Judgment, New York: Columbia University Press, 2nd edn 1929.

So Zarathushtra addressed Mazdā himself: ‘Arise …take to thyself might through devotion’, Y. ) To judge from the tradition, the prophet taught his followers to be aware thus of the Heptad in their acts of worship, in the world around them, and, ideally and as a spiritual and ethical goal, as indwelling in themselves through their own strivings. This was not pantheism, for the members of the Heptad personify distinct powers, emanating from and of the same essence as the one eternal Being, but existing as separate divinities through his creative act.

A more scholarly reason for not attributing the full doctrine of the Heptad to Zarathushtra is that the relations of only five of them with their creations is attested in the Gāthās, those of Spenta Mainyu and Khshathra being lacking; and so it is argued that the full system evolved only later. But since the Gāthās are hymns, not theological treatises, gaps must be expected in the attestation of doctrine there. Moreover, belief in the Heptad not only appears to be an integral part of Zarathushtra’s theology but is archaic in character; and no satisfactory explanation has ever been offered as to why such a doctrine should have been evolved in later times and have become part of the very essence of his religion.
