The Asoka inscriptions: analysing a corpus

The Asoka inscriptions: analysing a corpus

Tieken, Herman

This book attempts a textual and literary analysis of the inscriptions of Asoka- the oldest in India- and their relationship as a corpus. Unique in both content and format, the inscriptions primarily engage with ideas of good kingship and dhamma rather than with donations made or the celebration of territorial conquests, the usual topics of later inscriptions.
