The Brāhmaṇas are believed to be written after the védas. These texts describe, in simplified terms, aspects of Hindu rituals, mythology, and the philosophy of the védas.
The Āraṇyakas, literally meaning 'texts compiled in the wilderness', also discuss concepts of Hindu philosophy and rituals, and are thought to be written by hermits.
