Abstract

This article is a philological study of literary motifs in the Middle Persian apocalyptic work of uncertain date, Zand ? Wahman Yašt. The author claims that the motifs under his consideration in the text of ZWY (=Zand ? Wahman ? Yašt) go back to Middle Persian version of several Avestan Yašts, especially, to the Middle Persian translation of the second part of Yašt 1 (known as Wahman Yašt), Yašt 11, and Yašt 8
