I was reading the biography of Mircea Eliade on Answers.com just to find out that this website claims that Eliade is American!
Indeed he lived for a long time in the USA and taught at the University of Chicago, and got the American citizenship at the age of 59, but that does not make him American! Don’t try to steal Eliade from us!!!
He also lived and studied in India and still nobody claims that he is Indian.
This really annoys me, cause I see so many countries having a bad opinion about Romania but when it comes to people like Eliade, they are trying to make them theirs. Why is it so hard for you to admit that Romania has got many great people, with great minds?
