Acta Philologica: Tomus VI.

Rome: Societas Academica Dacoromana, 1976. Paperback. Small 4to. Stiff yellow wrappers. 189pp. Near fine. Most minor wear to outer wrappers only. Item #49043

Tight, attractive issue of this Rome-based academic journal of philology, almost entirely in Italian with a bit of English. Contributor's copy, bearing the name/address (Milan) inkstamp on front flyleaf of Ioan Petru Culianu (or Couliano, 1950-91), the controversial Romanian philosopher, essayist and historian of ideas, religion and culture. On May 21, 1991, he was murdered -- some say assassinated -- in a bathroom at the University of Chicago's Divinity School, likely because he proved a vocal critic of Romania's Communist post-Revolution regime in interviews and articles. His article "Note Sur Opsis et Theoria Dans la Poesie d'Eminescu" appears on pp. 93-98, where laid in are three photocopies of another, unidentified Couliano journal article. Quite unusual.
