Abstract

China Review International: Vol. 16, No. 4, 2009 tively after the Tang period, it also affirms the Tang period as one characterized by unprecedented religious effervescence, given the multifaceted and complex interactions the Dizang cult had with surrounding developments. Thus, I wished that Zhiru had included more space to discussing the sociohistorical conditions of the Tang period that had made possible, or encouraged, the kind of religious exuberance that we see in the case of the Dizang cult. Overall, The Making of a Savior Bodhisattva is an excellent work that contributes significantly to the fields of Buddhist studies and Chinese religion. It will be the standard work on the early history of Dizang. Its comprehensive contextualization of the Dizang cult results from a judicious use of a wealth of sources and astute reflections on the best of contemporary scholarship. Thoroughly researched and rich in details, the book has much to offer students and specialists in related disciplines. Chiew Hui Ho Chiew Hui Ho is a PhD candidate in the Department of Religious Studies at Stanford University. His research focuses on indigenous Buddhist narratives of the Tang period.
