Religious Arts of Asia

This programme looks at the great religious traditions of Asia: it deals with many countries, regions and time periods from antiquity to the present. In practice, Buddhism receives the greatest coverage, from India, through Central Asia, Southeast Asia, China, Korea and Japan, but other notable religions, such as Hinduism and Shinto, and animistic and syncretic practices are also addressed; courses consider iconography, ritual, faith and pilgrimage in their diverse regional and historical guises, making use of temple buildings, statues, paintings, vestments, accoutrements and fittings, formal, informal and popular.
