Abstract

Reviews  Jessica Rawson, finally, traces the origins of the ornaments that are complementing the carvings in cave  back to Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent, “where frames, ultimately derived from the Hellenistic Mediterranean world, were common for Gandharan and later sculpture” (p. ). As in the previous volumes of this series, philological, historical, art historical, and archaeological approaches importantly modify and adjust our generally accepted knowledge of Buddhism in the Tang era. Buddhism is shown in its dimension of a lived religion in its at times troublesome relation with the central government. One can only praise the Heidelberger Akademie der Wissenschaften, the Institute of Archaeology and Museology at Peking University, the Chengdu Municipal Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology, the Sichuan Provincial Research Institute of Cultural Relics and Archaeology, and the Bureau for Cultural Relics of Anyue County for their excellent work. Bart Dessein Bart Dessein is a professor of Chinese studies at Ghent University, Belgium, specializing in early Chinese Buddhism.. NOTES . See my review on Lothar Ledderose and Sun Hua, eds., Buddhist Stone Sutras in China. Sichuan Province, vol. .
