Preceded by a seminar held at Trinity College Dublin, The Moon as Myth and Symbol is the first of a series of volumes called “East/West Intercultural Papers”, edited by R. Bertoni, published by New Trauben (Turin, Italy), and prepared for printing by Piero De Gennaro.

When invited by the editor to send their texts, the authors were asked to respond to the main theme in whatever way they preferred, and by doing so to implicitly be part of a collective research discussion. Even though this publication does not intend to study the problem announced in its title in a systematic way, it is hoped that the papers included may contribute to the general picture, and thus be of interest also to readers outside the authors’ circle.
