Toward the Adi Granth

Title:Toward the Adi Granth
Author:Singh Mann, Gurinder
Publication:The Making of Sikh Scripture / OSO Monographs
Enumeration:vol. 1, no. 8, pp. 69-86, May 2001
Abstract:This chapter and the two previous chapters examine in detail the extant Sikh scriptural manuscripts in relation to the compilation of the Adi Granth (the primary Sikh scripture). Here, an analysis is made of the seventeenth-century manuscripts in order to reconstruct the history of the text up to the compiling of the Adi Granth in the l680s. The existing classification of these manuscripts is examined and a modified picture of their mutual relationships proposed. Next, the Adi Granth itself is addressed, and its production is reconstructed in a way that radically revises the current understanding of the surrounding time and circumstances, as well as the relationship between its contents and those of textural antecedents, such as the Kartarpur Pothi (described in the last chapter) and other seventeenth-century manuscripts.
