The Oxford handbook of Sikh studies by Pashaura Singh( Book )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Handbook is divided into eight thematic sections that explore different 'expressions' of Sikhism. Historical, literary, ideological, institutional, and artistic expressions are considered in turn, followed by discussion of Sikhs in the Diaspora, and of caste and gender in the Panth. Each section begins with an essay by a prominent scholar in the field, providing an overview of the topic. The following essays provide detail and further treat the fluid, multivocal nature of both the Sikh past and present. The Handbook concludes with a section considering future directions in Sikh studies. -- from dust jacket

Martyrdom in the Sikh tradition : playing the "game of love" by Louis E Fenech( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2009 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The notion of martyrdom and the role of martyrs in religious and political history constitutes a major component in discourse among Sikhs throughout the world. Martyrdom in the Sikh Tradition examines how and why Sikhs began to represent their history as a history of persecutions and martyrdoms and began to see themselves as a 'community through whose veins flows the blood of martyrdom'. Fenech seeks the reasons why the themes of sacrifice and martyrdom came to dominate Sikh imaginations in the early twentieth century and how these understandings continue to play such a vital role in the Sikh community today. He does this through an analysis of the Sikh scriptures, eighteenth and nineteenth century Sikh literature, as well as the voluminous tracts and newspapers produced under the auspices of the late nineteenth-century 'reform' movement, the Singh Sabha."--Jacket
The darbar of the Sikh gurus : the court of God in the world of men by Louis E Fenech( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The court of the Gurus was central to the changing Sikh socio-political and religious formation. Focusing on documentary evidence available in Punjabi, Hindi, and Persian sources, this book meticulously reconstructs the evolving nature of the darbars of the Sikh Gurus. It explores the significant connections between the process of description and change in Sikh religion and state formation." "The volume explores the ideas and lives of the Gurus and the people in their courts. The author examines the court literature and investigates the various reasons behind the elevation of Nand Lal's poetry as sacred on equal footing with the utterances of Gurus and its connection to the representation of the darbar. Fenech carries the narrative forward into the nineteenth century through the history of the court beyond the Gurus. This book will interest scholars, researchers, and students of Sikh studies, religion, and medieval Indian history."--Jacket
