Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to give an outline of relationship between Christianity and other “cosmic” religions. Propound approach is based on idea characteristic for integral traditionalists who consider culture as a universal and ahistorical structure of symbols evincing itself through external objects (works of art, literature, architecture) and molding our way of understanding. This structure should understood as a specific “language” through which the eternal Truth had been expressed once for all by Jesus Christ. Thus pre-Christian religions (and cultures based on them) can be regarded as a divine arrangement for historical fulfillment accomplished by Christ.
