Icons, artefacts and interpretations of the past: early Hinduism in Rajasthan

Title:Icons, artefacts and interpretations of the past: early Hinduism in Rajasthan

Abstract:Unravelling the variegated existing tapestry of religious faiths is often complicated, particularly as the roots of some existing belief systems are thought to lie in processes set in force during a region's early historical, or sometimes even the prehistoric or protohistoric, period. Against this background, the present paper seeks to look at the archaeological and related evidence from one part of India - namely, the modern-day State of Rajasthan - and attempts to understand the available early data in the broader context and framework of the 'shaping' of the beliefs and practices that have, over time, come to form part of present-day 'Hinduism'.
