The historical settings in this collection range from C13 England to C16 Southern India and Andean Peru, and from Bohemia to late-colonial Zimbabwe and modern India. The writers aim to spark new thinking about religious conversions, cultural appropriations and interactive emergence across fields. This is a companion volume to "Conversion in Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages"; one of the two volumes from Princeton´s Shelby Cullom Davis Center´s yearly seminar.
