In this volume, we catch glimpses of Buddhism in the Koryo period at its height. It was a time when the religion made significant contributions to the development of Korean culture. Art and literature flourished under the support of the central government. Monasteries of great beauty were constructed, and the monastic community was productive in philosophical discourse. Korea was one of the great centers of Buddhist life in East Asia and this gave it prestige and recognitionby surrounding states. Koryo Buddhism was in many ways a royal religion.
