Hindu Theology: The Embodiment of God (MT13)

Speaker: Prof. Gavin Flood
Date: November 7, 2013
Time: 14:00 to 15:00

The history of Hinduism is replete with the idea that the divine becomes embodied in forms in the world from people (such as the teyyams of Kerala), to plastic icons in temples, to the mythological incarnations. This seminar will examine this idea with reference to particular examples.
