Dear Tim Dickens,

you are looking for some references discussing the influence of Persian religion.
The following titles come to my mind:
- Boyce, M.: A History of Zoroastrianism, Leiden-Cologne (Handbuch der
Orientalistik...) 1982
- Boyce, M.: The Religion of Cyrus the Great, in: Achaemenid History III. ... ,
ed. by Amelie Kuhrt and Helen Sancisi-Weerdenburg, Leiden 1988
- Dandamaev, M.A.: several articles and books, focusses mainly on socio-economic
- Duchesne-Guillemin, J.: La religion des Achemenides, (HISTORIA 18), Wiesbaden
- Frye, R.N.: The History of Ancient Iran, Munich 1984

I hope this helps a bit.
