  • Cloth cleansed in fire, animals with incombustible fur, and how it all comes together in India and Eurasia
  • Dr Péter-Dániel Szántó (Oxford)
  • This talk will eluciate the meaning of the Sanskrit word agniśauca (‘cleansed in/by fire’), which can denote a kind of cloth and a kind of small animal. However, one cannot identify the true referent by relying on Indic sources alone. Looking to China, Inner Asia, and Mediaeval Europe, a remarkable shared belief emerges: the cloth cleansed in fire and the fur of small animals are actually one and the same thing.
