Marianna Ferrara is Research Fellow at the Department of History, Cultures, Religions at the Sapienza University of Rome and she is currently working on a research project centering on Shamanism and the Arts of healing. She received a Ph.D. in the History of Religions from the Sapienza University of Rome focussing on the political construction of yajña as the practice par excellence in ancient Indian texts and as social and ritual displaying of power. Her research interests are the relations between ritual practices, canon, and authority. She is author of the book “La lotta per il sacrificio. Rappresentazioni, categorie, metodologie nello studio dell’India antica” (Bulzoni, Rome 2013) and of several contributions on academic journals and volumes. Among the most recent publications: “The ‘Implied Leader’ and the Vedic discourse on sovereignty: Rethinking the exclusion of the vrātyas from social intercourse in the framework of the reading process” (2015); “Sciamani e śramaṇa nel discorso di Eliade su ‘lo yoga’ ” (2015); “Il Sītāyaṇa nelle arti del XXI secolo: uno sguardo storico-critico su tradizione, woomanhood e diaspora sudasiatica” (2015); “One yajña, many rituals: how the Brāhmaṇical ritual practices became the ‘Vedic sacrifice’ ” (2016); “The Sacrifice of Others: South Asian Religious Practices in Early Modern Europen Vocabulary” (2016); “The Function of Yajña between Practitioners and Clients: Rethinking the Genesis, Appropriation, and Control of the Practice from Ṛgveda Onwards” (2016); “Discourse on Sexuality and Promotion of Power: How the Queen becomes a Means of Persuasion” (2017). She is editor, together with A. Saggioro and G.P. Viscardi, of the volume “Le verità del velo” (SEF, Florence 2017).
