"An Introduction to Zoroastrianism", une approche non-traditionnelle : http://www.fas.harvard.edu/~iranian/Zoroastrianism/index.html

Dès la page 92, vous avez une traduction fiable d’une grande partie des sources avestiques et pahlavies. Après avoir lu l’introduction, lisez s’il vous plait, en premier, les Gathas (p. 120-147), les Yashts (p. 158-214) et Bundahishn (p. 276).
