At the peak of their power, the Mughals ruled over a massive swath of southern Asian terrain: from Afghanistan in the northwest, Kashmir in the north, Bengal in the northeast, and deep into the Deccan south. Despite the fact that most of the inhabitants of the Indian subcontinent were Hindu, during the 16th and 17th centuries Mughal India became a major cultural, intellectual, and political center of the Islamic world, rivaled only by the Ottomans to the west. This course examines how this polity and its culture evolved during nearly three centuries of Mughal imperial rule in India (ca. 1500 - 1800), despite - or perhaps because of - the considerable religious differences between the ostensibly Muslim rulers and their putatively Hindu subjects.
