       The Centenary of Sanskrit Chair in Crackow,  1893-1993
       ------------------------------------------------------
 
Sanskrit has been taught at the Jagiellonian University since
1860.  however, a chair of Sanskrit was established for Leon
Mankowski in 1893.  Since then, studies have been continued there
by such scholars as Andrzej Gawronski, Helena Willman-Grabowska,
Tadeusz Pobozniak and their disciples.
 
They coverred a wide range of subjects from linguistics to
literature, poetics, mythology, religion and philosophy.
Sanskrit, Vedic, Prakrits together with Romani and Hindi
languages have all been taught there at some stage.
 
Nowadays, the two main branches are Sanskrit and Hindi Studies,
research focusing on Sanskrit poetics, epos and folk-tales on the
one hand and Hindi linguistics on the other.
