Cicero and Cicero speak of "ritual drama" as ceremonial performances designed to "deliver important teachings" by captivating the senses and tugging at emotions." "Then, just as now, ritualists employed theatrical props, special effects, symbolism, gestures, speeches, and other elements of performance to have the greatest visual and emotive impact on their audience..."
Cicero and Cicero draw explicit links to the Zoroastrian Frame, e.g., the "weighing of the Soul in the Hall of Judgment." (p. 109), indicating "sacred drama" is a tool used to propagate the Zoroastrian Frame.
