Dear Greg,
about the Pañcadevataa concept and the Pañcaayatanapuujaa there are
interesting commentaries by Hazra in his Studies in the upapuraa.nas, vol.
II, pp. 447-50 (with references to the KuuP, MatP, etc.) and p. 394 and 420
(on the DeviiBhgP).

>would appreciate any references to secondary sources on this and any hints
>as to its earliest occurrence in Sanskrit literature.
