This collection of Indological and Iranological essays, originating in a conference held at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities in honor of veteran Israeli Vedic scholar Shaul Migron, presents a rich selection of Indo-Iranian scholarship from Israel, the U.S. and Europe.
The volume has four major thematic and textual foci: (1) the language of the Vedas; (2) the study of ancient Indian ritual and its refractions in the epic; (3) classical Iranist and comparative Indo-European studies; and (4) Sanskrit poetics, in particular from the period of innovative synthesis in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries in southern India. These essays, in the Jerusalem tradition of meticulous philological research, shed light on major aspects of language, ritual and poetics in ancient India and Iran.
