The researcher Manuel Mayo participates in the II Complutense International Congress of East Asia

II Congreso Internacional Complutense de Asia Oriental

From November 28 to December 2, 2022, the II Complutense International Congress of East Asia will take place at the Complutense University of Madrid, entitled Supernatural Asia: religion, ritual and folklore in Asia.

In this context, the researcher in training Manuel Mayo participates in a table on rituality in Japan with a presentation entitled “ Ἄρκτος, ḫartak(k)a, bjǫrn, matu and kamui: the sacred bear. A shamanic link between Indo-European and Asian religions”. The work will focus on raising the differences and similarities between Indo-European and Asian cults dedicated to the bear, using shamanism and religious zoomorphism as a meeting point between two apparently different worldviews.
