Understanding Buddhist Death Project

Description

The Bristol Buddhist Death Ritual Project was awarded funding by the AHRC. It was an interdisciplinary collaboration between anthropologists and experts in Religious Studies. The project was concerned with Laos and Thailand in Southeast Asia, and China, and was the first comparative academic study of Buddhist death rituals in these two very distinct cultural areas. Some of the chosen locations and rituals, such as the festivals for the dead in Laos and China, have not been documented before.

Religion today: Themes and issues

Description

There is a widespread perception in the West that we live in a secular age, an age in which religion is at best an optional extra, if not a false delusion completely out of place. However, religion still arouses passion and causes controversy; it controls and transforms lives. An informed understanding of the contemporary world thus requires an appreciation of the role of religion in shaping ideas, world-views and actions that have an impact on the social as well as on the personal life of the individual. This free course, Religion today: Themes and issues, gives you a glimpse into this fascinating area. First published on Thu, 23 Jun 2011 as Religion today: Themes and issues.
