Jewels of Authority: Women and Textual Tradition in Hindu India

Editat de Laurie Patton
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – March 2016
The essays in this collection address the problem of Hindu women's relationship to authority, both within and without the textual traditions of Sanskrit, Tamil, Hindi, and English. The authors adopt a method of close textual and ethnographic reading, which results in some surprisingly new and subtle ways of interpreting older, more "classical" discourses, such as Veda and Mimamsa, as well as newer discourses, such as the RSS use of the Devimahatmya.

"The essays collected in this work succeed marvelously in demonstrating that the relationship between women's authority and traditional Brahmanical Hinduism is dynamic, multifaceted, contextually based, and continually under debate."— The Journal of the American Academy of Religion
"The singular achievement of this collection—and it is truly groundbreaking—is its focus on quite specific intellectual, spiritual, and ritual contexts in order to examine the status of women in the history of Hinduism. . . . The book is unique in many ways. The scholars are all women, all are experts in Sanskrit or regional languages in India, all are trained in the most modern research methodologies, and all are theoretically astute, with penetrating feminist and criticalanalysis."—Choice
