Cinq cours sur les Yasts de l’Avesta/ par Jean Kellens. Paris, 2016, 192 p. ISBN : 978-2-910640-45-3.

Summary
This volume includes “five courses” devoted to the Yasts, that Jean Kellens held at the Collège de France. They are divided into two series, each corresponding to a special period. The first three took place between 1997 and 2000: De la naissance des montagnes à la fin du temps: le Yast 19 and the two Promenade dans les Yasts à la lumière de travaux récents, which appear here under the new titles La maintenance du monde and Le catalogue des sacrifiants. The last two titles, La notion d’âme préexistante and Le panthéon mazdéen, written in the years 2008-2011, represent a more recent reflection. Three other contributions have been added, which complete or explain more in details some reflections of the “five courses”: Caractères différentiels du Mihr Yast, Les saisons des rivières and Les Fravasi.
