INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL ON HUMANISTIC IDEOLOGY

This new European periodical in English is of great concern for scholars of religion. It could have been created only in Romania , a land situated at the intersection between West (Europe) and East ( India ). Themes and approach (moderately postcolonial in the case of the Indian scholars) would have delighted Mircea Eliade.
