Medieval Hindu Law by Ashutosh Dayal Mathur

Book Description

This book examines significant developments in Medieval Hindu Law between the eight and fourteenth centuries CE, which is described as the period of "secularization" of Hindu law. Based on a detailed study of seven leading Sanskrit texts written during that period as well as significant commentaries on the smrtis and dharma sutras, the book focuses on the changes which took place at the time, and their subsequent reflection in the texts. It explains how Hindu law emerged from the shadows of "dharma" and established itself independently as "vyavahara." It explores the reasons that may have been responsible for these changes. The book also takes into account important secondary material of the time on history, law, and political theory.
