From Hagiographies to Biographies

Ramanuja in Tradition and History

Ranjeeta Dutta

  • Unique study of the hagiographical representations from twelfth to fourteenth century of R?m?nuja.
  • Focuses on a relatively less researched area of socio-religious history, community identity and historical memory of South India.
  • Innovative argument on life histories, viz., the hagiographies and biographies cannot be always framed within the binaries of the sacred and the secular, which themselves are not mutually exclusive categories.
