 DESCRIPTION
spacer
The present book, Religious Movements in Medieval India, attempts to explore the Bhakti movement in Medieval India. Beginning from the 7 century A.D. to the 18 century, Medieval India saw a phenomenal outpouring of religiosity in the vernacular oral traditions on themes ranging from dilemmas of every day life to the mysteries of the universe. Scholars have focused on the analysis of the texts, philosophical constructs or the societal aspects enlightening us with many readings. While any one cannot be reduced to another, the study of Bhakti demands a holistic an integrated approach drawing analytical tools from many disciplines. The 19 century saw a rediscovery of many sacred texts that contributed to the construction of Hinduism as a monolith. The process of reducing morality to textuality saw the wholesale standardization of very vibrant, dynamic and diverse religious practices. Historically the religious beliefs and practices of the Hindus were too divergent to constitute a coherent, monolith religious system. A historical gaze at Hinduism clearly points out that to view this, as a single religious system is not correct and a distortion of the heterogeneous religious practices of its people. Throughout history alternate spaces have been created and Bhakti was one such medium. The present book is an attempt to explore this movement in its different dimensions in various regions of India. It also highlights the attitude of the male Bhaktas to women and the creation of an alternative space by the women. Using a variety of sources inscriptions, and literary texts the author has traced the growth and development of the Bhakti movement and shown how the ideologies, social bases and organizational structures in different parts of the country have given a distinct shape to this movement. This is a valuable text for the undergraduate and postgraduate students. This book would be a useful supplement to scholars working on the social and religious history of medieval India. Scholar of religious studies, sociology and women's studies would find this book of general interest in order to understand the religious traditions of South Asia in all its diversity.
