Hindu mythology and the critique of sacrifice: the head beneath the altar, ed. and tr. by Brian Collins

Hindu mythology and the critique of sacrifice: the head beneath the altar, ed. and tr. by Brian Collins

The book presents a wide-ranging study of Hindu texts read through the lens of Rene Girard's mimetic theory of the sacrificial origin of religion and culture. He examines the idea of sacrifice from the earliest recorded rituals through the flowering of classical mythology and the ancient Indian institutions of the duel, the oath, and the secret warrior society.
