Iranian Gods in the Persepolis Fortification Archive

The proposed study aims to illustrate the position of Iranian gods in the Achaemenid pantheon and will serve as an important basis for the ongoing research on that pantheon and the cultic activities in the heartland of this empire, which up to now has been mainly focused on its Elamite divinities. It will contribute to a more dynamic and less one-sided understanding of ancient Iranian religion: not a monolithic development, but a synthesis that is truly Persian in its genesis and significance and that, in turn, has informed the development of Iranian religion in general, and that of later Zoroastrianism in particular.
