Gurus and Their Followers: New Religious Reform Movements in Colonial India
Gurus and Their Followers: New Religious Reform Movements in Colonial India
Description
About the Author:

Antony Copley is Reader in Modern History at Rutherford College, University of Kent at Canterbury. He is the author of The Political Career of C. Rajagopalachari 1937-1954: A Moralist in Politics; C. Rajagopalachari: Gandhi's Southern Commander; Gandhi: Against the Tide; and Religions in Conflict: Ideology, Cultural Contact and Conversion in Late Colonial India.

About the Book:

This volume brings together essays on the new religious reform movements of the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries. The essays cover the Brahmo Samaj, the Ramakrishna Mission, the Arya Samaj, the Ahmadiya movement, the Theosophical Society and Aurobindo Ghose. The focus is on the remarkable religious and spiritual personalities who inspired new ways of thinking about religion and spirituality; their relationships to social and political change; and their profoundly inward and mystical approach to the religious life.

This volume will be of great interest to scholars of modern India, religious movements and reforms, and cultural history.
