Since the works of M. Boyce, Zoroastrianism is often analyzed on the axiomatic basis of an “immense conservatism”. This position seems to be methodologically, hermeneutically and empirically unsatisfying. My research on the history of the Zoroastrian cult of fire indicates that even at the heart of Zoroastrian identity – the worship of (an eternal) fire – resides history. In the following article I try to follow, retrogradely, the historical tracks of the eternal fire in Zoroastrianism, from the New Persian Zoroastrian sources to the Young Avestan texts.
