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.
