Origin and Growth of the Puranic Text Corpus: With Special Reference to the Skandapurana

The Purana panel that was part of the 12th World Sanskrit Conference that was held in Helsinki in July 2003 was intended to investigate deviations from the original Purana texts, and the papers that were presented at that panel are gathered in this collection. They concentrate mostly on the original Skandapurana, which is an excellent resource for research on the beginnings, development, and growth of the Purana writings as well as the theological advancements that these works depict.

The order in which the chapters of this book are presented has a purpose, even if each chapter may be read independently of the others. The first portion of Bakker's contribution might be seen as a kind of introduction to the topic being discussed. The second component of the analysis focuses on a portion of the text in which the distinction between recension and other categories does not have a significant impact. Torzsok and Harimoto's contributions centre on the transmission of the Purana and its evolution into a variety of recensions during the course of their research.
