This site gathers information about Jaina philosophers, their works, life time, social relations and the locations of their activity.

The information focuses on authors belonging to the Digambara branch of Jainism, who were active between the 4th and the 17th century of common era. This period of Jaina thought is characterized by an active intellectual engagement with other traditions of Indian thought.

The information gathered here is therefore not strictly limited to information about Jaina philosophers. It also pertains to works and authors from other traditions, if particular forms of connection with Jaina thought are evident from a philological perspective.

The information is drawn from primary sources and scholarly publications, occasionally also less reliable sources are stated for the purpose of documentation.
