At a Glance

Depending on who you ask, some believe Zoroastrianism is dying out, while others argue it has influenced the world significantly. Join us as we explore this ancient Persian religion that, though numerically small today, birthed ideas that have profoundly impacted the Abrahamic traditions. We will learn about its founder, a religious innovator whose ideas altered human history and continue to shape our world today.
