Abstract: Towards a rehabilitation of the 15th century, the so-called 'decadent period' in Campā. This paper presents some Cam inscriptions of the 15th century from the modern Vietnamese provinces of Binh Đinh, Phu Yên and Gia Lai, that belong to the reign of King Vrshu Vishnujātti Virabhadravarmadeva, Prince Nauk Glaun Vijaya (1400 to 1441), which show why we can no longer speak of this period as 'decadent'. Although the Cam territory in this period is somewhat reduced, the power of a Cam king evidently remains strong and is supported by powerful Hindu rituals and foundations. The ongoing strength of Campā is seen to be reflected in the sacred sculpture and in some as yet unpublished inscriptions.
