dc.description.abstract Professor Liu Jinbao is a leading scholar in the global study of the Dunhuang Buddhist Caves in northwestern China. A world heritage site, the Dunhuang (Mogao) Caves are carved into the cliffs above the Dachuan River along the ancient Silk Road and comprise the largest, most richly endowed and longest used treasure house of Buddhist art in the world (492 caves with numerous statues, murals, scriptures, etc.). In this lecture, he will discuss the historic evolution from early research on the Dunhuang Buddhist caves by European orientalists toward the recent rise of the Dunhuang scholarship in China, Japan and other countries in the Pacific Rim. His speech will evaluate and describe the transformation of research materials, methods, and values in Dunhuang studies from the past to the present. en_US
