The present volume contains fourteen selected papers in English by the late G.D. Sontheimer and follows up on his earlier volume King of Hunters, Warriors, and Shepherds: Essays on Khandoba (Delhi 1997). The volume contains essays on the juristic personality of Hindu deities, the history and religion of pastoral groups in the Deccan and the interdependence of folk and scriptural religion. The articles reflect Sontheimer`s multidisciplinary approach, combining the methodologies of philology, anthropology, history, archaeology, epigraphy and iconography.
