Traditionalism is a novel school of thought of the twentieth century which in the conflict between tradition and modernity that emerged in the Age of Enlightenment and flourished, it advocates the tradition. Beliefs of this school such as perennial philosophy, which is located in the heart of every tradition, has caused to believe legitimacy of all deep-rooted traditions and consequently, the legitimacy and saving all great religious traditions, i.e. the religious pluralism. This paper reviews the fundamentals of pluralism of this school of thought. This article claims that the most fundamental belief of traditionalism, which leads to accept religious pluralism, i.e. the validity and sanctity of all historical traditions, is flawed and dismissed.
