“Buddha’s Word: The Life of Books in Tibet and Beyond” is Cambridge’s first museum exhibition of Tibetan art and artefacts, showcasing unique items from the collections of the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and the Cambridge University Library.
From the University of Cambridge website:
This catalogue to accompany the exhibition is the most complete publication to date of MAA’s Tibetan and Buddhist collections, including artefacts and research published for the first time.
Specialist articles by leading international researchers draw on cutting edge research to explore the complex materialities and social efficacy of sacred books – as supports for Buddha’s words and relics with their own potency and agency, and as travelling texts that have undergone and enacted dramatic transformations in their journeys across Asia: from manuscript to printing and from palm leaves to digital dharma.
