Aims and Objectives of the Workshop

This workshop aims at imparting rigorous training to the participants in the epigraphy of medieval Western India. There were five major languages, viz. Sanskrit, Prakrit, Marathi, Gujarati and Kannada and five scripts, Nagari, Devanagari, Modi, Nandinagari and Halekannada prevalent in medieval Western India. Most of the copper plates, stone inscriptions and manuscripts/documents were written in either of these languages and scripts. Out of these the workshop intends to focus on the epigraphic and manuscript heritage of Western India composed in Sanskrit, Prakrit and Marathi. The workshop focuses primarily on the language and the scripts as tools for the study of epigraphs. Hence, the scripts will be taught to the participants who are expected to be well-versed in languages either Sanskrit/Prakrit or Marathi. The training will be imparted in two groups, one group focusing on Sanskrit/Prakrit epigraphs and manuscripts and the second group on Marathi epigraphs and documents.
