Description - Encyclopedia of Hinduism by Denise Cush
The proposed encyclopedia would cover all aspects of Hinduism in the conventional sense and include more ethnographic and contemporary material in contrast to the exclusively textual and historical approach of earlier works. It would include a wide range of subject matter such as: historical developments (among them nineteenth and twentieth century reform and revival); geographical distribution (especially the diaspora); major and minor movements; philosophies and theologies; scriptures; deities; temples and sacred sites; pilgrimages; festivals; rites of passage; worship; religious arts (sculpture, architecture, music, dance etc.); religious sciences (e.g. astrology); biographies of leading figures; local and regional traditions; caste and untouchability; feminism and women's religion; nationalism and the Hindu radical right; and new religious movements. The history of study and the role of important scholars past and present will also be discussed.
