"...an invaluable addition to our growing knowledge about the age-old and complex religion that is Hinduism, and represents a very useful tool for all those who are engaged in academic research about it." – Benedict Kanakappally, in:
Bibliographia Missionaria LXXXIV (2010)
"These are excellent volumes. There is nothing published quite like it in scope and depth. It brings together some of the most recent scholarship, takes a broad understanding of Hinduism, and is multi-disciplinary in approach, drawing on Indology, History of Religions, and Theology and dealing with both traditional topics and themes of contemporary concern such as human rights and feminism. This is an invaluable resource for students and scholars." – Gavin Flood,
University of Oxford "The scholarly world has long awaited an encyclopedia on Hinduism of the appropriate depth and comprehensiveness. With contributions from leading scholars from around the world on the subject,
Brill's Encyclopedia of Hinduism is a prime example of fulfilling this need for generations to come. Scholars and students of Hinduism owe the editor and publisher of these handsome volumes a huge debt of gratitude." – Julius Lipner, Professor emeritus of Hinduism and the Comparative Study of Religion,
University of Cambridge ‘On the whole, due to its sheer scope, academic excellence and reliability, the
Brill’s Encyclopedia of Hinduism is a must for any reference library, especially for institutions with programmes on Hinduism and Indic studies (…) a profitable long-term investment.’
