Beyond boundaries

Varahavtar_Panel

The aim of Asia Beyond Boundaries is to reimagine the pan-Asian culture of the Gupta period (3rd to 6th centuries AD). The project team will examine the cultural constitution and configuration of the centres of political power, map the languages of political and religious discourse came to be used across Asia, and analyse how temples, monastic organisations and landed estates emerged as autonomous socio-economic institutions with stable endowments.
