Vol 1 (2013): Buddho-Daoist interaction in China
The papers presented in this inaugural issue of eJECAR derive from a workshop on Buddho-Daoism, held in the Summer of 2012 under the auspices of the Käte Hamburger Kolleg at Ruhr University, Bochum, for the study of religious exchanges. As such, Buddho-Daoism is a term that has been coined to signal a variety of primary practices and beliefs endorsed by both traditions. The idea behind this meeting was to provide further perspectives on Buddhist and Daoist exchanges and mutual appropriations in order to get a better understanding of the close and continuous relationship that has persisted between the two religions from early on.
