Could anyone provide me with a bibliography of the process by which the
text of the Avesta was generated, transmitted, fixed, and the transition
to its being written down? I am interested in possible parallels and
divergences with these process in the case of the Vedas.
I posted this on the largely quiescent Indo-Iranian group and got no
response except for someone who expressed a similar interest.
