9780774810807: Gandharan Buddhism: Archaeology, Art, and Texts (Asian Religions and Society)

The ancient region of Gandhara, with its prominent Buddhist heritage, has long fascinated scholars of art history, archaeology, and textual studies. Discoveries of inscriptions, text fragments, sites, and artworks in the last decade have added new pieces to the Gandharan puzzle, redefining how we understand the region and its cultural complexity.

The essays in this volume reassess Gandharan Buddhism in light of these findings, utilizing a multidisciplinary approach that illuminates the complex historical and cultural dynamics of the region. By integrating archaeology, art history, numismatics, epigraphy, and textual sources, the contributors articulate the nature of Gandharan Buddhism and its practices, along with the significance of the relic tradition. Contributions by several giants in the field, including Shoshin Kuwayama, John Rosenfield, and the late Maurizio Taddei, set the geographical, historical, and archaeological parameters for the collection.

The result is a productive interdisciplinary conversation on the enigmatic nature of Gandharan Buddhism that joins together a number of significant pieces in a complex cultural mosaic. It will appeal to a large and diverse readership, including those interested in the early Buddhist religious tradition of Asia and its art, as well as specialists in the study of South and Central Asian Buddhist art, archaeology, and texts.

Descrizione libro University of British Columbia Press. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Gandharan Buddhism: Archaeology, Art and Texts, Pia Brancaccio, Kurt A. Behrendt, Integrating archaeology, art history, numismatics, epigraphy, and textual sources, this is the first volume to adopt a truly multidisciplinary approach to the study of Gandharan Buddhism. Contributions by several giants in the field, such as Shoshin Kuwayama, John Rosenfield, and the late Maurizio Taddei, set the geographical, historical, and archaeological parameters for this anthology. Contributors articulate the nature of Gandharan Buddhism, its practices and relationship with other regions, and the significance of the relic tradition. Art historical and archaeological discussions shed light on the diffusion of brahmanical rituals and their significance to the Gandharan Buddhist community, the popularity of Buddhism within urban centers, and the connections between Gandhara and other regions in terms of trade, taste, and craft productions. Numismatic and iconographic analyses offer additional tools to decode the unique nature of the Buddhist faith in the region. The relic tradition central to Gandharan Buddhism is explored in terms of its connection to royal burial practices, while archaeological and artistic evidence provides new avenues for understanding relic worship. Finally, the vexing question of the presence of Mahayana Buddhism is confronted with a typological analysis of bodhisattva imagery, and the significance of newly surfaced birch bark manuscripts illuminates local belief structures not apparent in the artistic evidence. These essays create a productive interdisciplinary conversation on the enigmatic nature of Gandharan Buddhism that will appeal to a large and diverse readership. Its audience includes those generally interested in the early Buddhist religious tradition of Asia and its art, along with those specialized in the study of South and Central Asian Buddhist art, archaeology, and texts.
