Korean Buddhism: History- Condition-Art

 
Frederick Starr (Author)
Synopsis

Korea today is a divided country. It is a land of amazing political contrast. The South is famed for fore its tenacity, rapidly becoming one of the industrialized giants of the world. The North is the last bastion of communism, perhaps showing and equal tenacity in retaining its outmoded ideology.

But what do we know of its former history, art and religion?

Korean Buddhism is not a subject that has been exposed to the wider world. In modern Korea there is little time for a slow pace of life. We must look to a time before industrialization to glimpse the Korea of old.

In this book, written by the Fredrick Starr as long ago as 1918, we return to a time when life was slower, harder and less hectic. Korea at the time was under Japanese control, but is culture, art and religion remained defiantly unchanging. Korean Buddhism with its links to India, Tibet and China has played a pivotal role in the country's history and remains today a fascinating subject.
