Religious Conversion

Indian Disputes and Their European Origins
  • By Jakob de Roover, Sarah Claerhout
Product Description

This book re-examines the issue of religious conversion, which has been a site of conflict in India for several centuries. It discusses wide-ranging themes such as conversion, education, and reform in colonial India; process and practices of conversion in Christian Europe; Gandhi, conversion, and the equality of religions; perspectives from Hindu nationalism, secularism and religious minorities; religious freedom and the limits of propagation; and conversion in constitutional laws, commissions, and courts, to chart new directions for research in religion, tradition, and conversion. Tracing developments from 19th-century colonial era to contemporary times, the book analyses cultural background frameworks and the origins of religious conversion and its conceptualisation in Western Christianity. It further delves into how Indian culture and its traditions may have shaped many of the conflicts and responses to conversion.

Part of the Critical Humanities Across Cultures series, this book will be useful to scholars and researchers of critical humanities, religion, cultural studies, sociology of religion, comparative religion, philosophy, anthropology, theology, Indology, history, politics, postcolonial studies, critical theory, and South Asian studies.
