Zoroaster (pronounced /ˈzoʊrɵ.æstər/ ZOHR-oh-as-tər; Avestan: Zaraϑuštra; born between the 18th and 10th century BC) was a prophet and philosopher and the founder of Zoroastrianism. The spelling "Zoroaster" is a Greek derivation from the Avestan. Zarathushtra (pronounced /ˌzɑrəˈθuːʃtrə/ ZAHR-ə-THOO-shtrə) is a modern rendering of the Avestan pronunciation,[1] though Zarathustra (/ˌzærəˈθuːstrə/ ZARR-ə-THOO-strə) is more commonly used. In the Middle Persian and modern Persian languages he is called Zartosht (Persian: زرتشت),.

It is generally thought that Zoroaster lived about the 11th or 10th century BC, though some scholars believe that he lived sometime between 1750 and 1500 BC or between 1400 and 1200 BC. The traditional Parsi people of Pakistan and India place the Prophet as older than 600 BC.[2] The hymns attributed to him—the Gathas—are at the liturgical core of Zoroastrianism.
