This chapter surveys some of the major religious and intellectual developments during the centuries in which Islamic rulers governed northern India. The devotional work of Shri Chaitanya is highlighted along with the songs of Kabir, Ravidas, the new Ramayana of Tulsidas, and others. The synthesis of Islam and Hinduism produced a rich tapestry of ideas, which translated a profound re‐examination of social reality and significant scientific developments.

Keywords:   Akbar, Alberuni, Chaitanya, Kabir, Mughals, Ram, Sultanate, Tulsidas
