Abstract

This chapter looks at some of the common features and differences in the context, form and dispersal of textual knowledge across South and Southeast Asia. With a focus on the multiple cultural flows pertaining to knowledge transmission in the pre-modern era, it looks at patterns of adaptation and recreation of knowledge across the region. While there has been assimilation, adaptation and integration of a predominantly classical Sanskrit textual idiom across the region from early times, there have also been other parallel processes of knowledge dispersal with manifold evolutions across time and space.
