Description 1 online resource
Summary Religions in South Asia have tended to be studied in blocks, whether in the various monolithic traditions in which they are now regarded, thus Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, Sikh, Jain, or indeed in temporal blocks: ancient, medieval, modern. This volume seeks to look at relationships both within and between religions. It explores the diversity and the multiplicity within each tradition, but also the specific forms of their co-existence with each other, whether in accord or in antagonism
Notes Papers presented at a conference titled 'Modernity, Diversity, and the Public Sphere: Negotiating Religious Identities in 18th-20th Century India', organized by Max Weber Centre for Advanced Cultural and Social Studies, University of Erfurt, Germany, in September 2010
