Zoroastrian influence on Wheel of Time

Recommended Posts

Hi! So, I've been analizing references to real world mythology on WoT, and how they converge at certain points. But, at the central spot, there's the connection between zoroastrianism (or Mazdeism), and the Wheel of Time's myth of creation. You have The Creator in Ahura Mazda (creator God), The Dark One's parallel in Angra Mainyu (Adversary to Ahura Mazda), and the final savior in the figure called "Saoshyant", which resembles the Dragon Reborn: Both are born from a Maiden some years prior to the Final Battle, and both are supposed to cleanse the corruption cast in the world by the Dark One/Angra Mainyu. I've put together a video, part of my series of reviews on the series. This is my second one, the one about The Great Hunt, but I also show my take on zoroastrian influence, if you give it a try I'd be very happy, thanks!
