Readings in the Corpus of Dharmaraksa


The corpus of translation texts ascribed to Dharmaraksa (fl. ca. 265-308) represents an important milestone in the development of the Chinese Buddhist translation literature. In this course, students will read selections from Dharmaraksa's works, focusing on traces of the translation process, problems of interpretation, and what the texts reveal about the world in which they were composed. Ability to read classical Chinese is required. Some knowledge of Sanskrit and/or Gandhari is desirable, but not necessary.
