Research Description

Professor Brose specializes in the history and culture of medieval Chinese Buddhism with a focus on the development of Chan during the era of the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms. He is also in the initial stages of a new project on the conservative Buddhist movements of the late Qing and Republican periods. His most recent publication, Crossing Ten-Thousand Li of Waves: The Return of China's Lost Tiantai Texts (Journal of the International Association of Buddhist Studies, vol. 29:1 2006/2008), traces the exchange of Buddhist texts between China, Korea, and Japan.
