Jainism and the Rāmāyaṇa

The Rāmāyaṇa is without a doubt one of the most influential stories in the history of the South Asian subcontinent. Jains too engaged with the story and composed their own versions of it. In view of the conference theme, this lecture will focus on different aspects of these Jain Rāmāyaṇas, and reflect on their significance for the history of Jain studies, on the one hand, and of Rāmāyaṇa studies, on the other, and on their intersection.
