Asia, Modernity, and the Pursuit of the Sacred: Gnostics, Scholars, Mystics…
Asia, Modernity, and the Pursuit of the Sacred examines a large number of Europeans who, disillusioned with western culture and religion after World War I, and anticipating the spiritual seekers of the counterculture, turned to the religious traditions of Asia for inspiration. Harshly criticized by both scholars and religious reformers, their project of “Gnostic Diplomacy” became of continuing relevance in a time of violent clashes between inhabitants of ‘secular’ and ‘sacred’ worlds.
