About the book

Professor Mircea Eliade: Reminiscences is the outcome of a
cross-cultural collaboration focused on the intellectual output and
personality of Professor Mircea Eliade, the head of the Chair for
the History of Religions at Chicago University, between 1956 and
1986. There are also several articles from Romanian and American
researchers as well as a contribution by an Indian scholar.
The initiative of this book, a unique testimony on Professor
Mircea Eliade, belongs to Mihaela Gligor, Ph.D, Scientific
Researcher at the Romanian Academy. All along her endeavors
she has been generously assisted by Professor Emeritus Mac Linscott
Ricketts, the American bibliographer of Eliade. She has also
benefited by the generous support of Mr. Mircea Handoca, who
has given access to rare manuscripts and photos in his archive in
The publication of the book is a premiere in more than one
way: a first Romanian-American-Indian collaboration, published
in India – at Codex Publishing House – on Mircea Eliade. The
biggest surprise though, as acknowledged by Mihaela Gligor, is
the contribution of Mr. Priyadarshi Sen, the son of Maitreyi Devi,
reminding the reader about Eliade’s connection to India.
