Buddhism in Chinese society : an economic history from the fifth to the tenth centuries by Jacques Gernet( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 492 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A much broader historical overview than many works that discuss the economic intricacies of Buddhism in China, Buddhism in Chinese Society interweaves an understanding of social and political organization, Buddhist religious philosophy and doctrine, legal tenets, customs of the day, and many other significant layers of Chinese culture. Drawing largely upon primary sources - from the work of official Chinese historians to the writings of Buddhist monks - Gernet demonstrates the far-reaching influence of Buddhism on the economic development of China during a time when the religion was growing at an unprecedented rate among all levels of society. Buddhism in Chinese Society looks at state and imperial policy but also delves into the lives of villagers far away from the major centers of religious and economic power
The Taoist canon : a historical companion to the Daozang = [Dao zang tong kao] by Kristofer Marinus Schipper( Book )

18 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 298 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taoism remains the only major religion whose canonical texts have not been systematically arranged and made available for study. This long-awaited work, a milestone in Chinese studies, catalogs and describes all existing texts within the Taoist canon. The result will not only make the entire range of existing Taoist texts accessible to scholars of religion, it will open up a crucial resource in the study of the history of China. The vast literature of the Taoist canon, or Daozang, survives in a Ming Dynasty edition of some fifteen hundred different texts. Compiled under imperial auspices and completed in 1445--with a supplement added in 1607--many of the books in the Daozang concern the history, organization, and liturgy of China's indigenous religion. A large number of works deal with medicine, alchemy, and divination. If scholars have long neglected this unique storehouse of China's religious traditions, it is largely because it was so difficult to find one's way within it. Not only was the rationale of its medieval classification system inoperable for the many new texts that later entered the Daozang, but the system itself was no longer understood by the Ming editors hence the haphazard arrangement of the canon as it has come down to us. This new work sets out the contents of the Daozang chronologically, allowing the reader to follow the long evolution of Taoist literature. Lavishly illustrated, the first volume ranges from antiquity through the Middle Ages, while the second spans the modern period. Within this frame, texts are grouped by theme and subject. Each one is the subject of a historical abstract that identifies the text's contents, date of origin, and author. Throughout the first two volumes, introductions outline the evolution of Taoism and its spiritual heritage. A third volume offering biographical sketches of frequently mentioned Taoists, multiple indexes, and an extensive bibliography provides critical tools for navigating this guide to one of the fundamental aspects of Chinese culture

Dieux, déesses, démons : dictionnaire universel( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le Dictionnaire universel des dieux, déesses et démons est un pari intellectuel majeur. Comment et pourquoi toutes les cultures, depuis les origines, ont-elles engendré des milliers d'êtres doués de pouvoirs surhumains, capables d'influencer les vies, les saisons, de vaincre le chaos ou de créer le monde ? Les notices de cet ouvrage sans équivalent composent une généalogie des dieux, une histoire naturelle des êtres surnaturels. Des divinités tribales qui commencent à s'ordonner en panthéons dès l'âge du bronze jusqu'à l'émergence des religions monothéistes pendant l'âge du fer, voici réunis, selon leurs filiations, leurs origines, leurs devenirs, leurs fidélités, leurs divorces - leurs morts parfois -, l'ensemble des dieux, déesses et démons de toutes les civilisations que la terre a portées. En plus d'être un formidable outil de connaissance, ce dictionnaire est aussi un conservatoire, une Arche de Noé pour les dieux, des plus cocasses aux plus inquiétants. Il rassemble les travaux des grands noms de l'ethnologie, de l'archéologie, de l'histoire comparée des religions, pour constituer la première grande nomenclature du panthéon universel. -- 4ème de couverture

The present study of the life and times of Tu Kuang-T'ing is organized as a biographical chronicle with historical digressions and discussions of Tu's works under their period of compilation. It is based on diverse primary sources, including official and private historiography, collections of literary and religious tales, court memorials and liturgical documents, epigraphy, poetry, and recent archaeological findings in Szechwan province. The biography of Tu itself distinguishes five important phases in his life: the making of the future court Taoist (up to age 25), his service at the court of Emperor Hsi-Tsung at Ch'ang-An (up to age 31), the exile at Ch'eng-Tu (up to age 35), the period of transition between the faltering T'ang dynasty and the foundation of the kingdom of Shu in Szechwan (up to age 43), and, finally, his career at the court of Shu (up to age 75). The text of the first substantial biography of Tu Kuang-T'ing is presented in a collated and annotated edition in the Appendix. It had formed part of the hagiographical collection entitled "Lives of eminent Taoists" by Chia Shan Hsiang in the late eleventh century and survives today only in fragments. The Appendix is followed by a classified bibliography of the 126 works currently identified as ascribed to Tu Kuang-T'ing. The list of principle works cited, finally, gives the full bibliographical details for those works which are cited in abbreviated references in the notes
