The present volume is the outcome of a seminar on the Ideology and Status of Sanskrit held in Leiden under the auspices of the International Institute for Asian Studies. The book contains studies of crucial periods and important areas in the history of the Sanskrit language, from the earliest, Vedic and pre-Vedic periods, through the period in which the (restricted) use of Sanskrit spread over practically all of South (including part of Central) and Southeast Asia (sometimes referred to as the period of 'Greater India') up to the recent history of Sanskrit in India. The contributions of this volume are divided into three sections: 1. Origins and creation of the 'Eternal Language'; 2. Transculturation, Vernacularization,; Sanskritization,; 3. The Sanskrit Tradition: Continuity from the Past or Construction from the Present? Printed Pages: 530.
