Survey – I: For Neo-Zoroastrians
(Born to Non-Zoroastrian Parents)


IMPORTANT! If you were born in a household where both the parents – mother and father – were non-Zoroastrians then you can click on Survey – I which studies the demographic composition, socio-religious practices, ethnocultural identity, and migratory patterns of Neo Zoroastrians/Zoroastrians by choice.

Welcome to an anonymous survey that aims at studying the behavioural and attitudinal patterns of Zoroastrians (those born to Zoroastrian parent/s) towards the Neo-Zoroastrians (those born to non-Zoroastrian parents). Furthermore, the survey attempts to examine the interaction between the Zoroastrians and Neo-Zoroastrians.

This study is part of the doctoral project of Mr. Ruzbeh Hodiwala, a Ph.D. student working on his thesis, ‘The Historical Origins and Development of the Neo-Zoroastrian Movement: An Ethnographic Study of Neo-Zoroastrians’. The student is working under the supervision of Dr. Almut Hintze, Zartoshty Brothers Professor of Zoroastrianism, and Dr. Nima Mina, Senior Lecturer in Persian and Iranian Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London.
