Title: Transregional Intoxications : Wine in Buddhist Gandhara and Kafiristan
Authors: Klimburg, Max
Keywords: wine culture
Hindu Kush Area
Issue Date: 3-Aug-2016
Abstract: The essay deals with the wine culture of the Hindu Kush area, which is believed to be among the oldest vinicultural regions of the world. Important traces and testimonies can be found in the Gandharan Buddhist stone reliefs of the Swat valley as well as in the wine culture of former Kafiristan, present-day Nuristan, in Afghanistan, which is still in many ways preserved among the Kalash Kafirs of Pakistan’s Chitral District. Kalash represent a very interesting case of ‘pagan’ cultural survival within the Islamic world.
