Religious Studies | East Asian Buddhism
R350 | 27115 | McRae

R350 explores the Buddhist religion as it moved across the East
Asian cultural region of China, Korea, Japan, and Vietnam.  We will
focus primarily on China and Japan, but with special attention to
features of sub-continental magnitude.  We’ll cover a range of
doctrinal theory, practical and devotional activities, and socio-
historical issues.  Both a basic description of course philosophy
and the syllabus of lectures, readings and assignments are available
online at
