About this title


Published between 1880 and 1897 as part of Max Müller's Sacred Books of the East series, this five-volume translation of Pahlavi texts was the work of Edward William West (1824-1905). Largely self-taught, West developed his knowledge of ancient oriental languages in India, where he worked as a civil engineer. After returning to Europe, West focused on the study of sacred Zoroastrian texts and prepared these translations of Pahlavi manuscripts. His writings and editions are still referenced today in Indo-Iranian studies. Volume 2 contains the ninth-century Dādistān-ī Dīnīk and Epistles of Mān-skīhar. The former are religious judgments or decisions given by Mān-skīhar, a high priest of Iran, in answer to ninety-two queries put to him by fellow Zoroastrians. Along with the Epistles, relating to complaints made to Mān-skīhar about his brother Zād-sparam, these texts give the reader an insight into the Zoroastrianism of the period, its tenets, and its relationship with the developing Islamic faith.

Book Description:

Volume 2 of Pahlavi Texts was published in 1882 and includes histories of the manuscripts of the ninth-century Dādistān-ī Dīnīk and Epistles of Mān-skīhar, as well as noting their relevance to scholarship and Zoroastrian history. Their scope provides an insight into the nature of Zoroastrianism in the period.
