Dear Patricia,

I don't know which similarities your friend is after, but two suggestions:

- Witzel, Michael. 2011. Gandhāra and the formation of the Vedic and
Zoroastrian canons <http://nrs.harvard.edu/urn-3:HUL.InstRepos:9887626>. In
Proceedings of the International Symposium. The Book. Romania. Europa.
Etudes euro- et afro-asiatiques. 490-532. Bucharest: Biblioteca
Bucureştilor. <<< Agnes, is this the article you had in mind?
- Stausberg, Michael & Yuhan Sohrab-Dinshaw Vevaina (eds.). 2023. *The
Wiley Blackwell companion to Zoroastrianism
(Wiley Blackwell Companions to Religion). Chichester: Wiley-Blackwell. <<<
Part I will have a number of articles of interest to your friend.

All best,
Dr Arash Zeini
Bahari Research Fellow
Faculty of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies | University of Oxford

Co-editor of The roar of silence: A Festschrift in honour of François de
Author of Zoroastrian Scholasticism in Late Antiquity
