Biography of Roger Gaetani

Roger Gaetani is an editor, educator, and student of world religions who lives in Bloomington, Indiana. He has co-edited, with Jean-Louis Michon , the World Wisdom anthology on Sufism, Sufism: Love and Wisdom . He directed and produced the DVD compilation of highlights of the 2006 conference on Traditionalism, Tradition in the Modern World: Sacred Web 2006 Conference , and has edited the book A Spirit of Tolerance: The Inspiring Life of Tierno Bokar by Amadou Hampâté Bâ. Roger Gaetani translated (from the original French) and edited the book Introduction to Sufism: The Inner Path of Islam, by Eric Geoffroy. Mr. Gaetani’s most recent contribution to World Wisdom is Universal Aspects of the Kabbalah and Judaism by Leo Schaya, which he edited and for which he wrote the “Editor’s Preface.”

Roger Gaetani was born and formally educated in the United States (at Syracuse University and Indiana University), but spent a number of years in Morocco and Saudi Arabia as a teacher and developer of educational materials. While there, and in travels through other countries in Africa and Asia, he gained an appreciation for traditional cultures, thought, and art. Through these experiences, he became acquainted with the Perennialist School of thinkers, whose precepts he finds essential in explaining the most fundamental questions in comparative religion, modern civilization, and personal spiritual development.

As an educator and developer of educational materials and programs for many years, Mr. Gaetani also views his editorial activities in a similar light. He seeks to publish materials that edify, inspire, and lead to very real individual growth.
