Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and Sanskrit terms and notable words/concepts that occur in this book titled Reading the Fifth Veda. All oral theory on the two Sanskrit epics relies on analogy in seeking behind the written the traces of the oral. The author sets an orderly statement of the ideas about writing and orality that run through his recent work in the two rethinking books on Indian oral and classical epics (Hiltebeitel 1999a; 2001a), but especially the second one on the Mahabharata.

Keywords: Mahābhārata; Sanskrit epics
