RELS 26742 - Buddhist Travelers Across Asia

Course Credit: 1
(EAST, SAST)
Buddhist Travelers Across Asia This course examines the movements and developments of Buddhist practices and traditions, from first-hand accounts from the ancient world by travelers such as Xuanzang, Hyecho, Ennin and others, allowing them to teach us what diverse Buddhist worlds looked like more than a thousand years ago. We will also consider the relations of those ancient exemplars to some modern and contemporary Buddhist travelers and movements. REGISTRATION NOTE: This is not an introductory course. While there is no formal prerequisite, some previous course work in Religious Studies or course work that focuses on China, East Asia, or South Asia is expected. [R] [R]
