Synopsis: It has been evident for many years that no authoritative, reliable, and up-to-date reference work on Buddhism yet exists in any language. Brill's Encyclopedia of Buddhism aims to fill that gap with a comprehensive work, presented in two phases: a series of six thematic volumes including an index volume, addressing issues of global and regional importance, to be followed by an ever-expanding online resource providing access both to synthetic and comprehensive treatments and to more individuated details on persons, places, texts, doctrinal matters, and so on.
Illustrated with maps and photographs, and supplemented with extensive online resources, the print version of the thematic encyclopedia will present the latest research on the main aspects of the Buddhist traditions in original essays written by the world's foremost scholars. The encyclopedia aims at a balanced and even-handed view of Buddhist traditions, presenting the most reliable accounts of well-known issues and filling gaps in heretofore-neglected areas. In doing so, it emphasizes that Buddhism is simultaneously constituted by a plurality of regional traditions and a far-reaching phenomenon spanning almost all of Asia, and more recently far beyond as well.
Volume I, which appeared in 2015, surveys Buddhist literatures, scriptural and nonscriptural, and offers discussions of the languages of Buddhist traditions and the physical bases (manuscripts, epigraphy, etc.) available for the study of Buddhist literatures. Subsequent volumes will address issues of personages, communities, history, life and practice, doctrine, space and time, and Buddhism in the modern world.

About the Author: Jonathan Silk is professor in the study of Buddhism at Leiden University. His research centers on the scriptural literature of Indian Buddhism.
Vincent Eltschinger has been a research fellow at the Austrian Academy of Sciences since 2003. His research focuses on the genealogy and the religious background of late Indian Buddhist philosophy. Among his numerous publications, mention can be made of Buddhist Epistemology as Apologetics (Vienna, 2014) and a series of articles dedicated to the sources and polemical targets of Aśvaghoṣa.
Oskar von Hinüber is professor emeritus at the Albert-Ludwigs University of Freiburg and ordinary member of the Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur, Mainz, foreign ordinary member (Associé étranger) of the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres, Paris, and corresponding member of the Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Vienna. He has mainly published in the fields of ancient Indian cultural history, historical grammar and literature of Middle Indo-Aryan languages, the Buddhist manuscript tradition, and epigraphy.
