Interculturation Of Religion – Critical Perspectives on Robert de Nobili’s Mission in India
The essays revisit Nobili’s mission in Madhurai, in 17th Century. They evaluate the approach of Nobili to religion and culture that suggests neat separation between religious discourse and cultural symbols. The central discussion of the volume – the relationship between culture and religion – is relevant to India and beyond where religious fundamentalism uses religious, consciousness to gain political power. This book would interest students and scholars of religious, Indian history, sociology and politics.
