Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the title of this book Herrschergenealogie und Religiöses Patronat. The book includes the inscription culture of Rāṣṭrakūṭas, Śilāhāras and Yādavas who reigned in central India from the 8th to 13th century. It shows the modification of genealogical accounts to legitimize individual claims to power and proves that the 10th and 11th centuries were a period of religious change, which witnessed the shift in patronage patterns and a closer link between Vedic Brahmanism and Hindu temple worship. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Śilāhāras; Hindu temple worship; Rāṣṭrakūṭas; Vedic Brahmanism; Yādavas
