The book offers an introduction to a complex and often baffling field of study. Part I, ’Beliefs’ provides a series of encounters with a range of Hindu goddesses starting with the idea of ’Goddess’ as a philosophical concept. Topics include textual evidence for belief structures, goddess mythology, and the

This volume contains nearly 20 essays on obscenity in medieval culture. They represent an attempt to probe the natures, origins and consequences of obscenity in medieval literature, art, theatre and law. Although a core is devoted to obscenity in medieval French literature (where the fabliaux have elicited more previous attempts to come to terms with obscenity than has any other type of medieval literature), other contributions to the volume explore manifestations of obscenity in other cultures and languages.

The facets of Chinese religions are as broad, multilayered and varied as the geographical vastness of China itself, yet so many Chinese beliefs have found their way into the West - th
