Mary Boyce, Professor Emeriti of Iranian Studies was born in 1920, and spent part of her early life in Colonial India.  She received her Ph.D. in Oriental studies from Cambridge University in 1945 for a thesis on a subject in Manichaeism, a religion which derived much from Zoroastrianism. After her appointment at the University of London School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), first as a lecturer in 1947 and subsequently as a Professor in 1963, she came to concentrate on the study of Zoroastrianism. She has published numerous books and articles on the history of Zoroastrianism and evolution of its rituals and doctrines. She spent some time in Kerman, Yazd, and Sharifabad amongst the Zarathushti communities learning about their current ways and traditions.
