Société Asiatique



PRESENTATION

The Société Asiatique was founded in 1822 during the rush of enthousiasm that followed the first triumphs of scientific orientalism: deciphering of writing systems, restoration of monuments, comparison of languages. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries the Société Asiatique worked to accomplish its mission:

  • development & diffusion of the knowledge related to the vast area from Maghreb all the way to the Far East;
  • a scholarly and multidisciplinary approach that studied oral and written records of all the cultures concerned.
