Buddhism Across Asia: Networks of Material, Intellectual and Cultural Exchange, volume 1 遍及亞洲的佛教:物質、思想與文化交流的網絡,第一卷

Editor: 
Tansen Sen

Publisher:

Publication Year: 
2014

Abstract:

"Buddhism Across Asia presents new research on Buddhism in comprehensive spatial and temporal terms. From studies on transmission networks to exegesis on doctrinal matters, linguistics, rituals and practices, institutions, Buddhist libraries, and the religion's interactions with political and cultural spheres as well as the society at large, the volume presents an assemblage of essays of breathtaking breadth and depth. The goal is to demonstrate how the transmission of Buddhist ideas serves as a cultural force, a lynchpin that had connected the societies of Asia from past to present. The volume manifests the vitality and maturity of the field of Buddhist studies, and for that we thank the editor and the erudite authors. "    -- Dorothy C. Wong, University of Virginia
