Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Lectures explore the historical expansion and transmission of Buddhism across Asia generally following chronological and geographical approaches to the history of Buddhist traditions.

Goals:
• Analyze the evidence of monks, merchants, pilgrims, and other travelers who left traces of their journeys in the form of written accounts, inscriptions, images, or other artifacts
• Retrace networks for long-distance trade and other cross-cultural exchanges in order to understand stages and patterns of mobility
• Raise and answer questions about the transmission of Buddhism as a flexible and dynamic religious system rather than a monolithic unchanging entity with fixed doctrines and rigid rules.
