Buddhism in China by Samuel Beal( Book )

3 editions published between 1884 and 1996 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of the three religions, or religious persuasions, professed in China, two have already been described in a volume of the present series. The third, Buddhism, is to be considered in the following pages. To understand the position which this religion holds in China, it must be borne in mind that its influence depends not so much on its recognised authority as on the tone which it has given to the religious thought of the people. Although it was formerly patronised by the emperors and the court, it is now proscribed. Yet, in the presence of this, its influence is everywhere felt, and it undoubtedly affects the whole religious condition of the empire. Hence it is not erroneous to include in the number of professed Buddhists throughout the Eastern world the great proportion of the Chinese people, who, if not professed disciples, are at least implicit believers in the leading facts of this religion, and conform themselves to its teaching in daily life. The Buddhist religion has affected the entire population of the country, and, although not supported or countenanced by the government, is yet secretly respected even by the highest functionaries of the state. - Introductory

The land of Israel : a journal of travels in Palestine, undertaken with special reference to its physical character by H. B Tristram( Book )

2 editions published between 1865 and 1876 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ornithologist and clergyman H. B. Tristram (1822-1906), who became both a Fellow of the Royal Society and Canon residentiary of Durham, began his literary career with an account of his ventures into the desert of Algeria, where he had travelled seeking a salubrious winter climate. This subsequent book, published in 1865, narrates his journey through Palestine in 1863-4. An engaging account, written for a popular audience, it combines detailed observations of antiquities, geography, and the native wildlife with scriptural quotations; its stated aim is to demonstrate that the Bible accurately describes the region. Tristram was one of the earliest public supporters of Darwin's theories, noting their relevance to his own studies in his 1859 paper 'On the Ornithology of North Africa'. This book, and his later work of 1873 The Land of Moab (also reissued in this series), illuminate the complex contemporary relationship between religion and the natural sciences
