Website to Present Avesta Scripts

 

19 April 2006

 

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Ancient Iranian scripts from the Avesta, the holy scripture of the Zoroastrian religion, will be accessible on a website for the first time, announced the designer of the site, Esfandiar Khosraviani.


Currently the website is under construction, which will present software for ancient Iranian scripts and set a standard for typing the ancient alphabets on the webpage thus enabling operators to type the ancient handwriting directly.


The name of the website, www.ahnavad.com, is derived from the holy ’Gathas’, the oldest segments of Avesta, which contains the divine messages delivered by prophet Zarathushtra.


Khosraviani said that the website opted for a new approach to ancient scripts to make them applicable on the computer. It also introduced essays in the same handwritten scripts and history of Iran to facilitate access to segments of Avesta: Gathas and Vandidad, he added.


The editor of the website has also released an educational CD called ’Din Dabireh’ which is about Avesta alphabets. He presented the CD at the conference on Third Millennium of Zoroastrian Culture sponsored by Iranian Zoroastrian Community.


Khosraviani said that he was working on another educational CD to present introductory part of Avesta and Pahlavi scripts in addition to ’Khorde Avesta’, a concise version of Avesta for students.
