The twelve articles assembled in this volume of Collected Papers in Jaina Studies, written in English, were published as journal articles and book chapters between 1996 and 2016. The articles address aspects of the history, doctrine, organisation, and ways of life in Jaina mendicant orders, sects and schools, following an overview of the contemporary monastic traditions. The articles are here republished in a thematic sequence.
