L'eau : les réalités (les qanât), les mythes et les rites (la déesse Anahita) : de l'Iran préislamique à certaines coutumes et traditions conservées dans l'Iran contemporain

Abstract : This thesis focuses on the influences of the geographical condition of the Iranian plateau on the creation of the myth of Anāhitā and the beliefs concerning water in Iran and we are trying to demonstrate why its myths and rituals are different from those of other peoples benefited from the presence of water. The particular situation of its geography and the natural lack of water make Iran a hot and dry country. Four thousand years ago, this lack of rain on the Iranian plateau generated several religious and ritual beliefs in Persia as we can notice in Avesta and other works of pre-Islamic era. We clearly see the trace of these beliefs in the contemporary folklores. Researches on the language of that time are numerous compared to the study of the myths and their formations in the pre-Islamic Iranian thought. Several factors support this thought. Our task in this work consists in classifying them to be able to arise the basic structures of these beliefs which continue until today and the traces are present in the contemporary folklores. Our corpus consists of the whole of the texts of that time and mainly the religious texts in particular Avesta which remains almost intact until today and continue to influence despite of the arrival of the other cultures and religions, but what is interesting it is that the pre-Islamic Iranian thought knew how to tame these cultures and to locate them and to give them an Iranian form.
