R. C. Zaehner, Orientalist

Sat May 13, 2006

I read Mysticism Sacred and Profane in high school, like just about everyone else, I suppose (excuse me: “I reckon”), and I did not know until this day that Zaehner was involved in the great game. Even suspected of being a Russian spy, he was.

There’s also the matter of what he would have thought about the current nuclear apocalypticon.
