Persian culture and Zoroastrianism are main but often-ignored foundations of Western Culture. Also overlooked are the profound Gnostic ideas in the primordial teachings of Zarathustra. Persian Gnosticism permeated religious history for centuries across Eurasia, manifesting as a threat to orthodoxy with such movements as Manichaeism, Zurvanism, Mazdakism, and Sufism. We explore this heretical stream, as well as the rich tradition of Persian magic and folklore — culminating with author Sadegh Hedayat, whose work parallels that of Philip K. Dick, Frans Kafka, Henry Corbin, and other modern masters of imaginal Gnostic thinking.

Astral Guest – Jason Reza Jorjani, author of Novel Folklore.
