This small exhibition explains Zoroastrianism, an ancient but living religion named after the Prophet Zarathustra, through objects and coins from Persia (Iran). The display will feature a variety of ancient and modern objects and coins, and will highlight the importance of Zoroastrian traditions in other religions. It will touch on the concept and imagery of the Three Kings of the Christian tradition and will feature magnificent Islamic coins from Mughal India which follow the Iranian Zoroastrian calendar. Modern objects from the region will endeavour to show the ways in which Zoroastrian traditions remain an ongoing and important element of life for many people in the area today.
