9789004250420: Eighteen Lectures on Dunhuang

In Eighteen Lectures on Dunhuang, Rong Xinjiang provides an accessible overview of Dunhuang studies, an academic field that emerged following the discovery of a medieval monastic library at the Mogao caves near Dunhuang. The manuscripts were hidden in a cave at the beginning of the 11th century and remained unnoticed until 1900, when a Daoist monk accidentally found them and subsequently sold most of them to foreign explorers and scholars. The availability of this unprecedented amount of first-hand material from China's middle period provided a stimulus for a number of scholarly fields both in China and the West. Rong Xinjiang's book provides, for the first time in English, a convenient summary of the history of Dunhuang studies and its contribution to scholarship.
