CHAPTER 15
INDIAN CIVILIZATION IN ITS GOLDEN AGE
CHAPTER OUTLINE
What some historians contend is the greatest flowering of Indian culture blossomed during the Gupta Age,
320 – 480 C.E. Under a series of able, cultured rulers, the sciences and visual arts flourished. India
fragmented once again after the fall of the Guptas, and in the north, Muslim intruders established
themselves as a ruling elite. By the 12th century, they had eclipsed the Buddhist faith, though not Hinduism,
in the Indian subcontinent.
