The Evolution of the Sikh Community: Five essays
Back to library
From Google Books: "Sikh history has traditionally been regarded as a paradox. Beginning in the early sixteenth century as a system of internal devotion. Sikhism emerges into prominence during the eighteenth century as a clearly defined belief laying powerful stress upon external symbols. In a series of five essays this book examines Sikh history, scriptures, and society, seeking to show that the evolution of the community during the last 500 years has been a direct response to circumstances in the Punjab."
