Beginnings of Hinduism
The Big Idea:
The Aryan migrations brought new customs, religion, and the Sanskrit language to the Indian subcontinent. Aryan social systems evolved into the caste system. Hinduism developed from Aryan religious practices.
-> I can discuss the importance of the Aryan migrations.
-> I can explain Brahmanism in ancient India and how Brahmanism developed into early Hinduism.
-> I can outline the features of the caste system.
