Hindu theology is grounded in the reading of sacred texts and has been largely developed in commentaries on those texts. This reading class will focus on a single sacred text and a few commentaries on it by authors of various theological schools. It aims to introduce students with an elementary knowledge of Sanskrit to the style and reasoning of Sanskrit commentaries. Dr Rembert Lutjeharms is the librarian of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies, and completed his D.Phil. in Theology in 2010.
