There are records of many inter-faith debates (disputations) between Jews and Christians even up to modern times. However I have never heard of similar such debates between Jews and Zoroastrians. Are there records of such debates ever having taken place? Are there transcripts?

  • This question does not appear to be about Judaism within the scope defined in the help center.
If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • In Talmud and Medrash the 'debates' seem to be with Greeks and Romans. Some terms which might refer to the Zoroastrians are Chavar and Amgushi (Magi). Neither is used favorably. Offhand I don't remember any debates with them. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable can weigh in. +1. – user6591 May 19 '17 at 15:57
  • Seems like Jews; not Judaism. – mevaqesh May 19 '17 at 16:40
  • @mevaqesh, imo it's safe to assume on this site, but it should be edited in explicitly, that the interfaith debate has Judaism on one side of it. – msh210 May 21 '17 at 4:04
  • It sounds like a historical question of whether Jewish people did something; albeit something related to Judaism. I think this is the obvious intent of the question regardless of where it is asked. It seems more appropriate for the history stack exchange, IMO. @msh210 – mevaqesh May 21 '17 at 4:09

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic since such a debate could be completely about Zoroastrianism, this is not a question about Judaism itself, just as a Jewish publisher publishes mostly Jewish material, but a request for a list of all of their books which could include books not about Judaism, would be off-topic. – mevaqesh May 21 '17 at 12:50
