This volume-the outcome of a workshop-cum-conference that took place from 1st to 12th August 2011 in the Pondicherry Centre of the Ecole francaise d'Extreme-Orient,--is an invitation to practise the 'archaeology of Bhakti' with the help of both textual and non-textual sources. After an introduction by the editors about the complexities of the concept and practices of Bhakti in the Indian world, essays by nine scholars explore the phenomena of Bhakti and their chronology from different perspectives (textual, epigraphical, archaeological).
