Books By Author Geoffrey A. Oddie

Imagined Hinduism by Geoffrey A. Oddie Imagined Hinduism, Paperback (April 2006)

Explores the emergence and subsequent refinement of the idea of Hinduism as it developed among British Protestant missionaries in the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This book demonstrates how the missionaries' construction of Hinduism grew out of their own roots in post-Enlightenment Europe, and their Christian conception of religion.

Hindu and Christian in South-East India by Geoffrey A. Oddie Hindu and Christian in South-East India, Hardback (November 1991)

A study examining the religious institutions, trends and developments in parts of South-east India during the 19th- and 20th-centuries, which focuses on the Tanjore and Trichonopoly districts. Hinduism and Christianity are seen as living traditions, not static forms of religious organization.
