“Most” is a service provided by courtesy of the European Association for the Study of Religions (EASR) to which, for example, the national associations for the study of religions in Poland and the Czech Republic have affiliated.

Editorial and linguistic advice is given by the following:

The word “most” means “bridge” in several Slavonic languages. Here it is a symbolic name for an international electronic discussion list in which East European languages are given prominence. Because of the different orthographies, there may be some technical difficulties. However list-members will find out from experience what works best.

“Most” is part of an interlocking network of electronic discussion lists sponsored by the European Association for the Study of Religions (EASR). This association is affiliated to the International Association for the History of Religions (IAHR), to which several East European national associations for the study of religions also belong. The network of six lists provides discussion foci in loosely defined language regions across national boundaries. The EASR will place occasional announcements on these lists.

Individuals may subscribe to more than one list, depending on their interests and language orientation. Membership of the lists is not exclusive to members of the EASR or the affiliated national associations. List membership from outside Europe is also welcome, as appropriate.

The languages are not exclusive; for example English is quite common on Synkron, and Romanian might be used on Candide or on Tonantzin. All these lists operate on the same list management system.
