Who exactly wrote down the gita, and who exactly was the author of it. Are there any historical records about when it first appeared, was it narrated at first, if so was the whole epic of mahabarata narrated, how did they remember all of it.

  • Are you looking for origin of Mahabharata or Gita? Please clarify. – TheLittleNaruto Apr 11 at 9:31

    Yea but I don't really care about that in this question, I simply want to consider hystorical facts here – Puppet master Apr 11 at 11:09

    Since this site is mainly for religion, historical facts are not of much importance here. In that, what's stated in BG is more important than who actually wrote it. One could write an answer to your question here but it would be downvoted & even deleted. Try reading C. V. Vaidya's opinion on this here, also V. R. Narla's book. – sv. Apr 11 at 20:03

    You can also ask the same question on History SE where you may get better answers than here. – sv. Apr 11 at 20:06

    While I agree with you, that's just how the site currently operates. You can ask about it on Hinduism Meta SE. The main issue here is that traditional views on the authorship of BG are different from historical. E.g., a question about the Ganges river has been migrated from here to History.SE because users here started posting answers based on mythology. I suspect your question here will suffer the same fate. – sv. Apr 11 at 22:35
