The Pahlavi-Literature in Its Context

The Interreligious Contacts of Islamic and Zoroastrian Scholars in the 9th and 10th Centuries and the Genesis of the Pahlavi-Literature

The project aims to find out the motives of Zoroastrian priests in their literary production in the first centuries of Islam.This literary production will be considered not merely the reproduction of older Sasanian material but more so the product of a reformed Zoroastrianism which had adopted itself to a new religious discourse in confrontation with Islam.
