History of the Canonical Literature of the Jainas

by Hiralal R. Kapadia


Jainism is one of the ten or twelve major world religions. Yet it is one of the least known, largely because its scriptures have remained less known than those of the other world religions. The present book is the first and only comprehensive and detailed description of the entire canonical literature of the Jainas, both extant and not extant. The author was unusually qualified for the task, having spent over a decade cataloging Jaina manuscripts in the Bhandarkar Oriental Research Institute. It includes two copious indices, one of authors and one of titles. It is an indispensable reference work for serious students of religion.
