Robert Eric Frykenberg, Richard Fox Young

Honoring historian Robert Eric Frykenberg, the essays in this collection avoid the pitfall of Eurocentric, top down historiographies and instead adopt and adapt Frykenbergs own Indocentric, bottom up approach, thus accentuating indigenous agency in the emergence of Christianity as an Indian religion. / Contributors: Peter B. Andersen, Michael Bergunder, Judith M. Brown, John B. Carman, Gunnel Cederlf, Daniel Jeyaraj, Chandra Mallampalli, Geoffrey A. Oddie, Avril A. Powell, Rosemary Seton, Wilbert R.
