    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Between 616 and 1180, Buddhist monks at the Cloud Dwelling Monastery engraved around 1,600 Buddhist sutras on 15,000 stone slabs to save the texts from the impending end of the world. Over one-third of the 31 million lines of text were inscribed during the Liao Dynasty (907–1125). Through the analysis of the colophons this volume offers insight into politics, society, and Buddhism during this period.
