Earrings and Horns: Locating the first Naths

Location: OCHS Library
Speaker: Dr James Mallinson
Date: May 28, 2009
Time: 14:00

The Naths are ubiquitous in secondary literature on the religious culture of India during the last millennium, but they are very elusive in primary sources. This seminar will trace the development of the traits that set the Naths apart from other religious orders and try to pinpoint when they came together.
