Tantra, Magic and Vernacular Religions in Monsoon Asia

We are pleased to announce the publication of :

Acri, A., & Rosati, P.E. (Eds.). (2022). Tantra, Magic, and Vernacular Religions in Monsoon Asia: Texts, Practices, and Practitioners on the Margins (1st ed.). Routledge.


We reproduce below part of the summary:
This book explores the cross- and trans-cultural dialectic between Tantra and intersecting “magical” and “shamanic” practices associated with vernacular religions across Monsoon Asia. With a chronological frame going from the mediaeval Indic period up to the present, a wide geographical framework, and through the dialogue between various disciplines, it presents a coherent enquiry shedding light on practices and practitionners that have been frequently alieanted in the elitist discourse of mainstream Indic religions and equally overlooked by modern scholarship.
