Sharma, Arvind. 1986. The Hindu Gita: Ancient and Classical Interpretations
of the Bhagavadgita. Duckworth.

Does just what you are looking for. It has a chapter on Sankara and a
chapter on Ramanuja. However, this is a book, not an article.

Dear members of the list,

Could anyone recommend a good article-length study of the commentaries of
Sankara and Ramanuja on the Bhagavadgita?  I'm looking for a source that
be appropriate to give to an class of advanced undergraduates, without
presuming any knowledge of Sanskrit, thus nothing philological as such,
a piece of intellectual history.  I expected to easily find an overview of
interpretations of the great commentators, their differing strategies
the BhG, their understandings of key terms, their positions on maayaa and
theism, etc. but have thus far met with no success.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Whitney Cox
