Jenny Rose

Jenny Rose received her MA in Religious Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, and her PhD from Columbia University in Ancient Iranian Studies. While writing her doctoral dissertation (since published as The Image of Zoroaster: The Persian Mage Through European Eyes), Dr. Rose was simultaneously a Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies at Brunel University, London, and the Deputy Director of a Religious Education Centre that supported the teaching of world faiths in the British public school system. 

She is an invited speaker at conferences in both North America and Europe. Among her most recent publications on the Zoroastrian religion, Between Boston and Bombay: Cultural and Commercial Encounters of Yankees and Parsis 1771-1865, and Zoroastrianism: A Guide for the Perplexed, have been well received. Her book Zoroastrianism: An Introduction is used as a course text for teaching about the religion in universities around the world. 

Dr. Rose’s breadth of knowledge concerning the world’s religions, and her particular interest in the historical interaction between Iranians and those of other cultures along the Silk Roads into modern Central Asia, China and India, make her an ideal study leader.
