Clothey, Fred W.:
Religion in India: A Historical Introduction - hardcover

ISBN: 9780415940238

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: ROUTLEDGE CHAPMAN HALL], Review: 'What sets this book apart is (a) the emphasis on the arts, (b) discussion of rituals at various points in the narrative, and (c) its attention to the other [non-Hindu] religions of India and, to some extent, their interaction. This promises to be the best introduction to date on the religion of India.' - Vasudha Narayanan, University of Florida, USA 'Clothey's purpose is worthy and necessary. At present there is no complete textbook for undergraduates on the religions of India.' - Rick Jarow, Vassar College, New York, USA Table of contents: 1 On Wearing Good Lenses 2 Sources of Indian religion 3 The early urban period 4 The urban period 5 The post-classical period 6 The coming of Islam 7 Developments in late medieval India 8 Streams from the West and their aftermath 9 Religion in contemporary India 10 Global reach Religion in India is an ideal first introduction to India's fascinating and varied religious history. Fred Clothey surveys the religions of India from prehistory and Indo-European migration through to the modern period. Exploring the interactions between different religious movements over time, and engaging with some of the liveliest debates in religious studies, he examines the rituals, mythologies, arts, ethics and social and cultural contexts of religion as lived in the past and present on the subcontinent. Key topics discussed include: Hinduism, its origins and development over time Minority religions, such as Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism, Jainism and Buddhism The influences of colonialism on Indian religion The spread of Indian religions in the rest of the world The practice of religion in everyday life, including case studies of pilgrimages, festivals, temples and rituals, and the role of women. Written by an experienced teacher, this student-friendly textbook is full of clear, lively discussion and vivid examples. Complete with maps and illustrations, and useful pedagogical features, including timelines, a comprehensive glossary, and recommended further reading specific to each chapter, this is an invaluable resource for students beginning their studies of Indian religions.

Details of the book
Religion in India: A Historical Introduction
Author:

Clothey, Fred W.

Title:

Religion in India: A Historical Introduction

ISBN:

In his introduction to the history of lived religion in India, Clothey will emphasize the importance of ritual, local mythology, and historical context for the beginning student's understanding of religious belief and practice. Clothey's attention to the cultural production of religious movements and to the interactions between movements over time reflects his engagement with some of the liveliest conversations in the field of religious studies. There is currently no book on Indian religion that presents new trends in the study of regional religious movements in a way that is accessible to beginning students. This book will fill that gap.
