Neue Hallesche Berichte online available – Cooperation between the Franckesche Stiftungen and CrossAsia-eBooks

We are pleased to announce that as part of the cooperation between the Verlag der Franckeschen Stiftungen zu Halle and CrossAsia eBooks, the volumes of the Neue Hallesche Berichte series, which are out of print, are now accessible as Open Access publications on the CrossAsia eBooks platform.

The relations between the Francke Foundations and India go back to the early days of the Foundations. With the Danish-English-Halle Mission, the first mission of the Protestant church, the Foundations established contact with South India from 1706 on and published the missionaries’ reports, the “Hallesche Berichte”, between 1710 and 1772. The “Neue Hallesche Berichte”, published from 1999 on, aim at promoting contemporary scholarly studies of traditional relations with India. The series’ topics, developed in conference reports, monographs and critical editions of sources, include Dravidology, popular religion, the history of Christianity, the history of Hinduism, and the religion and culture of South India.

Of the nine books published so far, four volumes are now available as a digital edition:

Michael Bergunder, Peter Rahul Das (Hg.): „Arier“ und „Draviden“. Halle: Verlag der Franckeschen Stiftungen zu Halle, 2002. Neue Hallesche Berichte ; 2.

Will Sweetman: Mapping Hinduism: „Hinduism“ and the study of Indian religions, 1600-1776. Halle: Verlag der Franckeschen Stiftungen zu Halle, 2003. Neue Hallesche Berichte ; 4.

Eveline Masilamani-Meyer: Guardians of Tamilnadu: Folk deities, folk religion, Hindu themes. Halle: Verlag der Franckeschen Stiftungen zu Halle, 2004. Neue Hallesche Berichte ; 5.

Michael Bergunder (Hg.): Westliche Formen des Hinduismus in Deutschland: Eine Übersicht. Halle: Verlag der Franckeschen Stiftugen zu Halle, 2006. Neue Hallesche Berichte ; 6.
