About this item

A central theme of the collection is that every religious tradition, from its origin and throughout its history, has been marked by transfer processes that were the result of contacts with other belief systems, and that understanding religious traditions as dynamic and relational bodies helps de-essentialize the notion of religion. The topics include the Portuguese discovery of Buddhism: locating religion in early modern Asia, translocating religion in the Mediterranean space: monastic confrontation under Muslim domination, the mirror and palimpsest: the myth of Buddhist kingship in imperial Tibet, the meeting of the Daoist and Buddhism spatial imagination: the construction of the netherworld in medieval China, and locating the dialogue: on the topology of the setting in medieval religious colloquies. The 11 papers are from a February 2012 conference. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
