From the original monotheistic religion we receive the sacred text of Avesta. One of books in Avesta is the Vendidad, which addresses purity laws.

5. O Maker of the material world, thou Holy One! How far from her shall he stay, who brings food to a woman who has the whites or sees the blood?

6. Ahura Mazda answered: 'Three paces5 from her shall he stay, who brings food to a woman who has the whites or sees the blood.'

In what kind of vessels shall he bring her bread? In what kind of vessels shall he bring her barley-drink?

'In vessels of iron,5b or of lead, or of any common metal6.'
