Sub-Project Klaus

Royal Herrschaft in medieval Kashmir according to Kalhaṇa's Rājataraṅgiṇī

Starting from a narratology-based analysis of what is told in Kalhaṇa's Rājataraṅgiṇī about the life of the kings of Kashmir, the sub-project aims at registering and interpreting all forms and practices of royal Macht and Herrschaft mentioned in that work. It will be investigated how relations of Macht and Herrschaft were perceived and depicted by Kalhaṇa and on which ideas and convictions his depiction is based.
