(Panels of the Viith World Sanskrit Conference, Kern Institute, Leiden)
edited by J. Katz
Book Description: From the Introduction by Jonathan Katz: The articles in this volume are revised versions of papers presented at a session organized by Dr Sanjukta Gupta and the author for the 1987 World Sanskrit Conference in Leiden. The general interest in this session was the role of the Sanskrit tradition in the performing arts in India. Narrowing this down, the organizers invited participants to consider the relations between theory and practice in music and dance, with particular reference to the Sanskrit textual tradition of musicology.
