This paper focuses on Thus Spoke Zarathustra’s main religious sources, especially the Persian Avesta. On the one hand, it shows how Nietzsche had a deep knowledge of the prophet Zoroaster, and, on the other hand, how the latter was considered a relevant figure in Nietzsche’s time. It turns out that there are striking correspondences between  Nietzsche’s Zarathustra and the Avesta, which also demonstrates Nietzsche’s intercultural approach to his studies, rangingfrom philosophy, religion to literature.
