There is a growing recognition that scholarship on Indian religions has been hampered by the lack of knowledge of Jain sources. This book analyses different aspects of the extensive, more than two thousand years long tradition of Jaina narrative literature composed in Prakrit, Sanskrit and vernacular languages.Written by experts specialising in the study of Jaina narrative literature, this unique book offers an interdisciplinary approach. It presents interesting juxtapositions of narrative paradigms with Jaina ritual culture in history and the contemporary world as well as in Buddhism and Hinduism, thus resulting in new insights which are reflected in the chapters.This timely publication,brings to the attention of scholars the rich world of Jain narrative literature. It will be of interest to specialists in South Asian and Asian religions.
