Abstract

Most Iranian and Eastern researchers working in the field of religion believe that Zoroaster founded Magianism and was killed in an attack made by a foreign ethnic group. Two copies of his religious books were available: one in Takht-e Jamsh─źd royal Library, which was put to fire by Greek invaders, and the other in Takht-e Suleyman, which was stolen by them.However, according to Islamic traditions, Zoroaster was not a Magian prophet. He claimed to be a prophet and had collected certain verses. Later there were some conflicts among his people and, as a result, some followed him and some disagreed with him. Finally, he was expelled from among people and became prey to beasts.In these traditions, with some disagreements, someone called "Damast" is introduced as the prophet of the Magi, and their religious book has been called "Jamas", "Jamasb", and "Jamast". This prophet was finally murdered by his own people and his religious book was burnt.
