Description

This course is intended as an introduction to reading a variety of Buddhist texts in classical Chinese. We will begin with basic grammar, sentence structure, and vocabulary, and will then gradually move on to translating passages from Chinese to English. Ideally, students will have already studied at least three years of modern Chinese and will have some basic familiarity with Buddhist thought and history. Undergraduate and graduate students are both welcome. Students who have studied less than three years of Chinese should consult with the professor before enrolling.
