REL 81.04 Buddho-Daoism: Religious Competition and Interaction in Traditional China

Buddhism and Daoism developed together in traditional China through complex interactions that produced various difficult to define religious phenomena. Daoists and Buddhists appropriated each other’s ideas and practices so that many scriptures and rituals are sometimes nearly impossible to differentiate. Local religious communities followed practices that integrated ideas from both traditions. This course examines the various manifestations of Buddho-Daoist religious traditions in traditional China and their impact on modern Chinese religion.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
