Über diesen Titel


This book brings together essays by anthropologists, scholars of religion, and art historians on the subject of sacred place and sacred biography in Asia. The chapters span a broad geographical area that includes India, Nepal, Thailand, Indonesia, and China, and explore issues from the classical and medieval periods to the present. They show how sacred places have a plurality of meanings and how in their construction, secular politics, private religious experience, and sectarian rivalry intersect.

Contributors explore the fundamental challenges that religious groups face as they expand from their homeland or confront the demands of modernity. While some chapters deal with well-known religious movements and sites, others discuss little-known groups and help to enrich our understanding of the diversity of religious belief in Asia.

The book will be of interest not only to scholars of Asian religion and hagiography, but also to others who seek to understand the ways in which religious groups accommodate the challenges of new environments and new times.

Book Description:

Anthropologists, religious scholars, and art historians contemplate sacred place and sacred biography in Asia to show how secular politics, religious experience, and sectarian rivalry intersect.
