Francis X. Clooney, SJ
Bhagavad Gita, a Hindu classic of devotion and theology, has received extensive classical and contemporary commentary. The seminar explores selectively the interpretations of classical commentators (such as Sankara, Ramanuja, and Madhusudana Sarasvati), and 20th century interpreters (B. G. Tilak, Mohandas Gandhi, Bede Griffiths). This course is meant for students interested in closely reading Indian/Hindu texts, with attention to textual analogues from other religions. Sanskrit useful but not required.
Enrollment Limited: Limited to 20 students. Instructor's permission required.
