 DESCRIPTION
spacer
This volume brings together important and highly original essays by leading scholars of religion, history, and society reflecting upon the idea of practice of conversion in India. The experience of conversion is viewed as a terrain of multiple and diverse possibilities that focus on new boundaries, identities, beliefs, and practices. Further, the volume explores a range of contexts in which novel forms of piety, and modes of religious dissent and desertion take shape. The modes, motivations and symbolic meanings which Jainism, Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, and Sikhism attach to religious conversion are identified and transformations of sect, caste, and tribe explored across space and time. As an engagement of sociology, theology and history in the lively and sometimes vitriolic discourse on religious conversion in India, this volume will be an important and significant resource for students, teachers and researchers in these diverse fields.
