Switch to Forum Live View Help! Need info for a theological analysis!

I'm doing a theological analysis of Philip Pullman's trilogy "His Dark Materials" ("The Golden Compass" is the first of the trilogy). I found a reference by an anonymous character on page 96 to the 'Zoroastrian heresy', and when I looked up Zoroastrian theology on wikipedia, I found that Zoroastrianism's view of humanity's role in good vs. evil seems to be exactly what Pullman is arguing for by allegory in his book (as opposed to the Abrahamic view found in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). But I need more in-depth information than a brief summary in an online encyclopedia to be able to construct an adequate analysis for my report. I've been trying to get my hands on a book on Zoroastrian theology for *three* weeks with no luck! Does anyone know of a few *really* good websites on Zoroastrianism? I really need to find material of acurate enough and of high enough quality to hold up in my report.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! And blessings.
