An instrument of comprehensive and exhaustive knowledge of religious or religion-related issues, which have developed into a pluri-millennial history in the Far East area

The volume analyzes the most important cultural traditions of the Chinese, Japanese, Korean and South-East Asia area. It does not limit itself to analyzing transversally the great themes common to the whole region, but it goes deep into the immense religious tradition of China, up to Daoism and Confucianism. The other great cultural tradition examined is the Japanese one, both for general terms and for those specifically dedicated to the national religion of Shinto, without forgetting more recent phenomena related to the New religions. Great attention is also paid to religious forms and traditions of peoples or particular marginal areas, such as the Religion of Bali and Burma, Java and Thailand, with their rich corollary of local customs and traditions.
