This volume explores the delicate subject of gender and religion with honesty and charity-focusing on one of mankind's earliest and most textually-rich religious traditions, Vaishnavism. Steven J. Rosen has brought together eight essays by leading academics poets and practitioners who shed light on the lives and teaching of specific female saints throughtout history.
" A review can hardly do justice to the wealth of information and insights
evident in the book. It is a very significant contribution in the areas of
Vaishnavism and women."
