Ritual, Caste, and Religion in Colonial South IndiaNeue Hallesche Berichte
This book explores the impact that notions of ritual, caste, and religion had on society in 19th-20th century colonial South India. The authors present detailed studies of Tamil and Telegu sources, with a particular focus on the newly established print media of the time. They show how these concepts played a crucial role in the formation of social, cultural, and religious identities.
