Thesis

Religious pluralism in pre- medieval India (600 A.D. – 900 A.D)

Abstract:

A study of post-Gupta literature [including two contemporary plays] and archaeological sources in order to ascertain the extent to which pluralism of religion was present in popular culture, even though the sectarian textual tradition frequently opposed each other as heretical sects. The main hypothesis of the thesis is the existence of variegated sectarian traditions, which coexisted in the public sphere, despite the machinations of the sectarian theologians.
