The problem of the influence of ancient Iranian, including Zoroastrian, mythologies and images on the religious beliefs of the Eastern Slavs continues to occupy both philologists and historians [Toporov, 1989; 1995; Edelman, 2002; Stavisky, 1999]. However, as far as we know, the" Slavic " material was not actually used to reconstruct the very local forms of Zoroastrianism. This article is an attempt to use some data from ancient Russian literature, which may shed light on the formation of the figure of the prophet-founder of Zoroastrianism-Zoroaster (Avest. Zarathustra). The Slavonic Bestiary by O. V. Belova contains the following article: "ZORO-ASTER (var-t zoroast, Q.

Q. V. 3: 32ob " [Belova, 2000, p. 126]. This story may be interesting, at least because it is the only reference to Zoroaster, the legendary teacher of the Iranian religion (Avest. Zaraustra), as about a bird. In addition, no less interesting is the connection of Zoroaster with Christ, more precisely - with the liturgical cycle of Holy Week.
