Prophet Zarathushtra was an Iranian religious reformer of Zoroastrianism. Zoroastrian tradition notes he lived in the sixth century BCE, while scholars place him between 1500 and 1200 BCE. Zarathushtra was a hereditary priest who experienced a series of amplifying revelations concerning the struggle between the Creator, Ahura Mazda (Orimazd), an eternal God of wisdom and justice, and his evil adversary, Angra Mainyu (Ahriman) taking place on the world battlefield with human beings allying themselves with one or the other. Zarathushtra also preached about: the apocalypse in which a World Savior, born of a virgin mother, presides over the final victory; the dead resurrected; the last judgment; the last salvation; and the perfection of Ahura Mazda’s kingdom on earth.
