Despite the great geographical distance Indians and Hungarians, visiting each others country often experienced a feeling of congeniality and kindredship. This small book tries to analyse the historic background and origins of these feelings and attempts a factual survey of the efforts of Hungarian scholars, writers and artists to understand India, Indian literatures, arts and religions. Besides giving a detailed history of Indian studies in Hungary, well documented with the help of a rich bibliographical selection of books and papers from the beginning of modern Indian studies upto recent times, the book tries to show the intellectual background to these works, specially by surveying those works of the Hungarian literature which relate to India in their subject or philosophical content. Due consideration is given to contacts in the world of art as well. A separate section gives an almost complete bibliography of Indian literary works translated into Hungarian. Printed Pages: 110 with illustrations.
