Introduction Authority in Buddhism and Christianity Elizabeth Harris Liverpool Hope University, UK This issue of Buddhist-Christian Studies contains the papers 1 presented at the conference of the European Network of Buddhist Christian Studies, held in June 2009 at the Benedictine Archabbey of St. Ottilien near Munich on the theme "Authority in Buddhism and Christianity." 2 The European Network of Buddhist Christian Studies grew from a conference convened by the Rev. Gerhard Köberlin at the Academy of Mission in Hamburg in 1996, which drew together Christians involved in the academic study of Buddhism. The next conference, held at the Archabbey of St. Ottilien, attracted Buddhist participants also. It was at this point that the current name of the network was adopted. The aims of the network are to promote within Buddhist-Christian relations mutual understanding and dialogue, academic study, and practical cooperation and friendship. The network's main activity is a biennial academic conference on a theme important to the development of Buddhist-Christian relations. Conference themes have included "Buddhist Perceptions of Jesus"; "Christian Perceptions of the Buddha"; "Buddhism, Christianity and Creation"; "Conversion and Religious Identity in Buddhism and Christianity"; and "Buddhist Attitudes to Other Religions." 3 Invited presentations on selected aspects
