The primary focus of this study is to view Eliade as not only a historian of religions but also as a theologian, a philosopher, novelist and as someone engaged in cross-cultural dialogue with other religious traditions. Besides attempting to view Eliade's work from a variety of perspectives, this study contends that the scholarly work of Eliade cannot be separated from his own personal quest for meaning.
