Zoroastrians in Britain

John R. Hinnells

Oxford University Press

This chapter deals with the Zoroastrians' communal perspectives on their history and on Anglo'Zoroastrian contacts. It considers the presuppositions the various Zoroastrian groups had concerning their contacts with the British. The first section considers the Iranian Zoroastrians and the British. The second section looks at Anglo'Parsi relations in India. The third section explores the Parsis and the British in Pakistan. The fourth section examines the experiences of Parsis in East Africa. The fifth section considers religious interaction between the British and the Zoroastrians. In short, there are many strands to the network of presuppositions with which Zoroastrians came into Britain.

Keywords:   Iranian Zoroastrians, Anglo–Parsi relations, Parsis, India, East Africa, British–Zoroastrian interaction, Anglo–Zoroastrian contacts
