Fedotoff, Alexander. On George N. Roerich’s Academic Activities In The Field Of Oriental Studies During Nicholas K. Roerich’s Central Asian Expedition. – In: Manas: The Arab World and Islam in Cultural-Historical Perspective, Vol. 3, 2, 2017.
This article examines the Central Asian and Manchurian expeditions of the Russian Orientalist Yuri Nikolaevich Rerikh (known in English-language literature as George Nicolas de Roerich). It can be that these expeditions contributed to the definitive shaping of Roerich as a true Orientalist, a curious and exceptionally gifted thinker, as well as a talented observer who was deeply familiar with eastern cultures, who had mastered eastern languages and dialects, and who recognized how crucial it was for the West to get to know the East.
