Description

No english description available. Showing german description
Der indische Subkontinent und das persische Großreich weisen ethnisch gemeinsame Wurzeln auf und sind seit der Antike sprachlich, religiös und kulturell eng mit einander verbunden. In der Forschung wird die übergreifende indo-iranistische Perspektive aber nur selten eingenommen.
Der vorliegende Band spiegelt die Arbeit des Verfassers mit beiden Kulturkreisen wider. Er bietet ausgewählte Beiträge zum Buddhismus und zu weiteren Aspekten der indischen Kultur nach historischen und literarischen Quellenberichten sowie zu zahlreichen Themen aus dem iranischen Kulturkreis, insbesondere zur persischen Literatur und Dichtung.
