Abstract [en]

Contemporary Sikh historiographies present the creation of the Sikh scripture (Guru Granth Sahib) as an evolving process of entextualization with different strategies to make the gurus speeches fixed, recognizable and authoritative, but also how contemporary ritual performances of the text and ritual exegeses reinforce the entextualized character of the scripture in different ways, e.g. by ritual performance markers, upholding boundaries between authors and users, creating indexical links to presupposed contexts of “authentic” prior performances in history, etc. In this context it is also interesting that such processes can be actively challenged, as in the case of the “tenth scripture” (Dasam Granth) whose authenticity and authorship is still creating heated debates among the Sikhs.
