    Great natural misfortunes intensified Zoroaster's conviction.  In his time some geological convulsion changed the climate of Northern Asia, and suddenly caused bitter cold where there had previously been a tropical heat.  Both Spiegel and Haug have in recent years translated the first Fargard of the Vendidad, which commences by describing a good country, AryanaVaejo, which Ahura-Mazda had created as a region of delight.  Thereupon the "evil being, Angra-Mainyus, full of death, created a mighty serpent, and winter, the work of the Daevas.  Ten months of winter are there, two months of summer." (Library of Universal Knowledge, Clare, v.1, 1898).
