Natalia Chalisova, Natalia Aleksandrova & Maksim Rusanov: Ya evaṃ veda … Kto tak znaet … Pamjati Vladimira Nikolaeviča Romanova

Journal of South Asian Languages and Linguistics. 2021. Vol. 7. No. 1. P. 157-163.

The book under review brings together papers in memoriam Vladimir Romanov, Professor at the Moscow State University and the Russian State University for the Humanities, who passed away in November 2013. Vladimir Nikolaevič Romanov (1947–2013) was an outstanding scholar in the field of Indology, history and cultural anthropology. He devoted more than 20 years to preparing a translation of one of the most significant Middle Vedic texts, the Śatapatha-Brāhmaṇa (dated approximately to the middle of the first millennium BCE) into Russian.

Quite in accordance with Vladimir Romanov’s broad range of academic interests, the volume under review contains papers on different subjects and languages. It consists of an introductory Section and three parts: I “Indology,” II “History and theory of culture,” and III “Translations of classical Oriental texts,” which altogether contain 16 scholarly papers.
