What does it mean to "die Buddhist" in Japan? Why do Japanese Buddhist temples sell amulets for good luck? When and why did Buddhist temples in Japan start to sponsor rites for aborted fetuses? How did Buddhist statues and paintings become national art treasures? In this seminar-style course, we will answer these and other questions through a selective overview of Japanese Buddhist history. The course will be of interest to students of Buddhism, Japanese history, or religion in general.
