About the project

This website provides a more detailed and technical commentary to the Jamison-Brereton Rig Veda translation (Oxford Univ. Press, 2014) than was feasible in the published volumes. Sections of the commentary are being posted in stages. At present pdfs are posted in the Introduction and for all hymns in Books I–X that were SWJ’s final responsibility; JPB hymns in II and III also now have SWJ’s comments. For further remarks on the particulars of the commentary, see the introduction on the menu above.
