The Sanskrit word dharma can designate the socio-cosmic law that is upheld both by gods and humans. But it is also often used to refer to any of the numerous temple-related foundations made to support this law.

The DHARMA project seeks to understand the process of “institutionalisation” of “Hinduism” by investigating the roles of various agents, from kings and noblemen to priests, monks and local communities. It emphasizes social and material contexts of “Hinduism”, which requires a multi-regional, multi-scalar and multi-disciplinary methodology. DHARMA will study the history of “Hinduism” in comparative perspective, focusing on the period from the 6th to the 13th century in South and Southeast Asia. Our approach will be based on the correlation and contextualisation of written evidence from inscriptions and manuscripts and material evidence from temples and other kinds of archaeological sites.
