Chinese Buddhist Temple Gazetteers Workshop

Welcome to the Buddhist Temple Gazetteer Workshop at the University of Pittsburgh 11/11/2012 (Flyer, Program). This one-day workshop aims to introduce participants to the use of Buddhist Temple Gazetteers (佛寺志) for their own research. We will discuss the history of this type of gazetteer, reference tools and bibliographic aides, digital editions and online interfaces, and look in detail at one gazetteer series.

To the right are the slideshows (in .odp format) and other course material for our workshop. If you are using your own computer you will need:

If you have time perhaps browse through this article, which outlines the bibliographic information we have on Buddhist temple gazetteers: "Bibliographical Notes on Buddhist Temple Gazetteers" Here is a slightly older 中文版.

During the workshop we will be making use of the digital gazetteers collected here: Digital Archive of Temple Gazetteers .
