Front Cover
Vasudha Dalmia, Angelika Malinar, Martin Christof
Oxford University Press, 2001 - Religion - 461 pages
The essays in this volume offer vivid glimpses of the interdependence and interaction which formed a vital component of the various religious traditions of South Asia, of their particular selection from the same storehouse of key texts, and of their overlapping but also sharp demarcations from each other. This volume will interest students, researchers, and scholars in history, religious studies, anthropology, sociology, and area specialists on South Asia.
