Although the title sufficiently indicates the general scope of my thesis, it may yet be useful to give a few prefatory remarks. This translation is based on the Manavagrhyasutra text, as it was published by Ferdinand Knauer in 1897 (St. Petersburg). So far this is the only critical text by a non-Indian scholar 1). Knauer himself seems to have felt the need for a translation, in order properly to justify his editorial task 2), but other demands on his time prevented him from realizing his plan, and since then no one has done so.
