Synopsis

This series aims to meet a fundamental need in the study of religions, namely that for new, reliable translations of major texts. Each volume in the series covers a wide range of literature, including liturgy and legend, folklore and faith, mysticism and modern thought, political issues, poetry and popular writings. Attention is paid to daily religious life as exemplified in worship or in law, as well as to great movements of thought. The translations are accompanied by generous annotation, glosses, and explanations, thus providing valuable aids to understanding the special character of each religion.
