This project aims at creating a digital critical edition of the Paippalāda recension of the Atharvaveda (AVP), along with its English translation, a full morpho-lexical analysis, detailed linguistic and Indological comments, and links to Sanskrit literature. In this first phase, we will focus on books 1,4 and 12.
The end product of this project will become a valuable resource for scientists from various research areas, such as Indian studies, historical linguistics, literary studies and historiography of religion or culture.
The project is conducted jointly by the Department of Comparative Linguistics and the Institute of Asian and Oriental Studies of the University of Zurich, under the coordination of theNational Infrastructure for Editions. It is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation and will run 2017-2020.
