Encyclopaedia Iranica Online (Web Resource)
Title: Encyclopaedia Iranica Online
Author: Ehsan Yarshater, editor
Abstract: The Encyclopaedia Iranica, as an online resource available (gratis) at, represents a vast fund of searchable information, where coverage of subjects can continue to be updated, expanded, and enriched. Since it covers Iranian influences and interactions over a wide range of time and space, it inevitably addresses many topics that are pertinent, not only to the modern states of Iran, Afghanistan, and Tajikistan, but to the Central Asian republics, the Caucasian republics, Iraq and Turkey, India and Pakistan.

Zoroastrianism in the Encyclopaedia Iranica, vols. 1 and 2 (Book)
Title: Zoroastrianism in the Encyclopaedia Iranica, vols. 1 and 2
Author: multiple authors
Editor: Mahnaz Moazami
Abstract: Zoroastrian theology, cosmology and cosmogony, history of the faith, its rituals and ceremonies, Avestan and Middle Persian texts, festivals such as Nowruz, Mehregan, and Sada, and a host of other topics, hitherto dispersed amidst other entries in their alphabetical sequence in the Encyclopædia Iranica, are gathered together here in a 2-volume set. The two volumes enable the readers to chart their way through complex traditions and debates throughout history, and bring into focus the interdependence of these pioneering contributions. As a thought-provoking and authoritative work of reference, it is a testimony to the fine scholarship and remarkable erudition of its contributors, scholars who have been foremost in ensuring that the Encyclopædia Iranica maintains its high reputation for authoritative comprehensiveness as well as pioneering research.
