Veda and Torah: Transcending the Textuality of Scripture
In this book, Barbara Holdrege has set a high standard for comparative work and has made an important contribution to both Hindu and Jewish studies. She has looked at Veda and Torah not simply as 'scripture, ' but as systems of meaning, symbol systems, each with its own affiliated meanings, each with its symbolic context, and each with its history of interpretation.
What people are saying - Write a review
Even a cursory reading of this book, when I just looked up the subject of Vedas demonstrates the author's deep research study, understanding and erudite exposition with a stupendous degree of precision; my remarks are only with reference to her research study on Vedas as I know only about them and not about Torah.
However, I am sure she must have devoted the same focus of attention and care while researching Torah too.
This is a very valuable work for the students and scholars of Comparative Religion.
Hats off to this master-scholar!!
