This volume is based on papers delivered during the IXth European Conference of Modern South Asian Studies at Heidelberg in 1986. The idea of holding the panel "Hinduism Reconsidered" was to evaluate critically current concepts and analytical frameworks used by scholars in their studies on Hinduism. The participants of the panel were therefore invited to contribute papers which either focus critically on theoretical approaches to Hinduism or illustrate their analytical parameters and concepts of Hinduism by a case study based on field work or literary sources.
