Volume 12: 韓國高僧碑文 Anthology Of Stele Inscriptions Of Eminent Korean Buddhist Monks

ByJohn JorgensenPatrick R. Uhlmann

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This concluding volume of the series Collected Works of Korean Buddhism underwent several vicissitudes in the process of its making. Stele inscriptions are notorious for their sophisticated and recondite style, characterized by frequent references and cryptic allusions to Chinese classical literature. It seems as if the authors of stele inscriptions for eminent Buddhist monks felt compelled to match the arcane and subtle mind of the awakened masters with their own complex and convoluted diction. Translating these inscriptions amounts to a strenuous task requiring specialized knowledge reaching far beyond Buddhist Studies as such.
