<p style='text-align: justify;'>A composite manuscript of the <i>Bhāṭṭadīpikā</i>, a work by the famous 17th-century Mīmāṃsaka Khaṇḍadeva Miśra (also named Śrīdharendra ), the founder of "New Exegesis" (<i>Navya-Mīmāṃsā</i>). Khaṇḍadeva was the son of one Rudradeva and a younger contemporary of Appayya Dīkṣita . He was born in North India around 1600 and most probably died in Benares in 1665 (Ramaswami Sastri 1936: 116-17; Kane 1977: 1199; Edgerton 1986: 18). The work is a commentary or “garland of chapters” (<i>adhikaraṇamālā</i>) on the <i>Mīmāṃsāsūtra</i>s, still very popular in South India. It is most probably Khaṇḍadeva’s second work, written after the <i>Mīmāṃsākaustubha</i> and before the <i>Bhāṭṭa(tantra)rahasya</i> (Gode 1940). The manuscript is complete for the latter half (<i>pāda</i>s 5-8) of the tenth book (<i>adhyāya</i>), dealing in particular with the notion of "annulment" (<i>bādha</i>) of ritual elements which would otherwise be the object of a transfer (<i>atideśa</i>) from an archetype (<i>prakṛti</i>) rite to one of its ectypes (<i>vikṛti</i>). </p>
