Lecture: Korea: Buddhism and State in the Medieval Period
September 26, 2013 - 16:15-18:00
Open guest lecture by Prof. Yannick Bruneton, University Paris Diderot
My focus in this presentation will be on relationship between Korean Buddhism and mediaeval states. This relationship is often referred to in historiography as “Confucianization”. It can mean: 1) the process of incorporation of monks, sects and rituals into state apparatus, modelled on China from Tang to Ming; 2) the discourses of historians dealing with relationship between Buddhism, state and society; 3) the attitude and reactions adopted by Buddhist masters towards Confucianism.
